About Mountainside Institute
Mountainside Institute’s mission is to help communities and individuals find creative, integrated solutions to living sustainably in rural, high elevation landscapes.
The Institute is on the grounds of Mountainside Village in Victor, Idaho, right at the base of Teton Pass. Our beautiful site provides direct access to nature, a farm for onsite food production and best practices in sustainable building and living.
We offer workshops, trainings and retreats on high elevation solutions in: integrated design, collaborative leadership, energy efficiency, local agriculture, wellness, sustainable lifestyles and deep connections with land and nature.
Our Mountainside Institute Seminar Series offers on-going workshops and trainings to our local community. Series titles have included: High-Performance Building for Healthier Living; Toward Net-Zero Waste on Job Site; What Makes Community Loved Places.
Our goal is to facilitate understanding and action toward healthy living and sustainable practices. One of the underlying concepts we address is integrated problem-solving. Issues are complex and holistic approaches tend to be more beautiful and effective.
Mountainside Institute proudly partners with and supports other organizations, municipalities, and businesses, which focus specifically on sustainable living, holistic wellness and vibrant community life.
A percentage of real estate sales in Mountainside Village partially fund the Institute’s community outreach programs.
