OHIAS' mission is to educate and empower people everywhere to live responsibly, just and sustainable as our natural world requires.   We believe and many will agree  sustainable communities are the foundation stones and life blood of a sustainable planet.

Question of our day.

Are we not obligated knowing all we know about ourselves and our natural world to live responsibly, just and sustainable as our natural world requires.

An important part of our Mission and Work is about getting the best possible use and highest value from our local resources. Our urban forest presents one of the most natural, beautful, exciting, economic and healthy opportunities for community benefit. The  benefits are significant: more local jobs, locally made products and materials, local business opportunities and adding up to a much healthier, stronger and more sustainable local economy.


This effort also about offering a competing solution to using wood for momentary energy and releasing even more carbon dioxide into our atmostpherely.


Marin Community Benefit Cooperative Log Mill

Old Mill in Old Mill Park, Mill Valley CA. Built by John Thomas Reed around 1836.  Many local to Marin will recognized this picture of the Old Mill.


The saw mill we are speaking of and will build will not be much different than this one from yesteryear (above) yet will produce much of the same high quality lumber for everyone to enjoy and benefit.

Mill operations will also have a number of portable mills to reach fallen trees in some of our remote areas and narrow hillside roads.
