GARD Center outer wall

GARD Center front doorIn December 2002, we moved into new and spacious headquarters just a few hundred yards down the road from our previous home, the Gilbert Ecumenical Center. Our new facilities are located adjacent to the GARDC Demonstration Farm which is still situated on 5 acres of the Gilbert’s Estate.

The headquarters now house an administrative office, an air-conditioned conference room that accommodates up to 50 persons; classroom/boardroom for small meetings and sessions of up to 15-20 persons; a documentation and resource center which houses twenty (20) computers with Internet access and provides database searches, publications on the environment, agribusiness, entrepreneurial development, international conventions and trade agreements, agricultural production and other topics; CD’s, videos, newsletters, periodicals, pamphlets and books.

The Center’s rooms and audio-visual equipment are available for rent to groups and organizations.
