WELCOME TO THE EARTH REBIRTH FAMILY
THE EARTH REBIRTH CENTER
The Earth Rebirth Community Center is located at 325 E Comanche in downtown Norman. The ER Center is focused on educating people from all over Oklahoma by providing one-of-a-kind experiences that demonstrate social progress can be made with collective individual actions focused on the resources we all need most. Millions of people around Oklahoma care about bettering their lives in ways that provide both economic and environmental sustainability.
The Earth Rebirth Center is the only community center of its kind in Oklahoma and it continues to educate thousands of Norman residents and individuals from around the country on solutions to food, energy, water resources while encouraging social collaboration.
In the last two years, over 400 events have brought people in from all walks of life to educate each other and themselves around sustainable living. In addition, unique cause-oriented events like fundraisers, collaborative meetings, and call-to-action events have demonstrated tremendous support as the Norman community craves a place to connect with others in a time filled with divisive rhetoric. Notable events like our "Call for Peace" events involving Norman police officers one night and the Norman Police Chief another have brought dozens of people together to discuss racism, islamophobia, police brutality and many of the social issues that can only be solved around a dialogue based on how we are all the same.
The Earth Rebirth Center has proven to mean much more to people than just a community center focused on food, energy, and water. Resting in the heart of the vibrant and creative downtown Norman, the Earth Rebirth Center has become a place for people to find a home, a safe place, a creative work space, a needed escape, a collaborative headquarters and many things in between that help individuals, families and communities find themselves, and perhaps most importantly, dream big and act bigger.
OUR VISION FOR THE EARTH REBIRTH CENTER
21st century solutions need a home where every one in the world can find an alternative to their problems. As you enter the Earth Rebirth Center a wide variety of engaging technologies stand out to you. You grab a coffee and snack from the small local bistro operating in the lobby. You check out the aquaponic system growing plants with fish. You scope some of the products that can help you be more sustainable like energy efficiency, water quality, water conservation, home gardening and more. You stumble up to one of many computer tablets, a prompt screen introduces a selection of sustainability quizzes, games and on the spot workshops. As you make your way through the community center, you realize that everything you do has a lesson behind it. The floor is generating electricity on the lobby floor and the music stage. The rooftop has a large community garden for you to enjoy and engage. The walls are full of interactive information and challenges. You become a member because the perks, events, the volunteer opportunities are too great to pass up. You will surely be back - you still need to buy more sustainable products, attend events, to take a workshop, help in the garden, to finish the series of challenges and to donate, to bring your family and friends to a music fundraiser and so much more that will help better your life.
