Blackwood Educational Land Institute


In Person (Local)


Established in 2000 by Cath Conlon, Blackwood Educational Land Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to reconnecting students with the land and fostering an understanding of the interconnectedness of all living beings. Born from Cath's desire to provide her son, Cade, with meaningful experiences in nature, Blackwood evolved from the Conlon family's ancestral land. Through hands-on experiences, students learn about land stewardship and environmental restoration while building gardens and cultivating the soil. Thanks to the generosity of a Houston news company, the institute's first structure, a metal barn, provided shelter for students and teachers during inclement weather, marking the beginning of Blackwood's journey towards sustainability and educational excellence.
