Fundraising Goal: $150,000
Little Tree Huggers (LTH) Earth Center is a bilingual nonprofit, nondenominational environmental educational initiative in Leesburg, Virginia dedicated to breaking down barriers to sustainability in all areas of society.
LTH Earth Center is the evolution of LTH LLC, a home-based Preschool, licensed to operate with a maximum of 12 children since 2015. Due to an overwhelming response to our curriculum and award winning environmental commitments like solar and geothermal, we were urged by the local community to embark on the process of expanding LTH into an environmental educational center able to impact the lives of hundreds of more children and families. LTH Earth Center was incorporated in 2020 as the charitable arm of LTH LLC and, now that LTH LLC is at full capacity for the next 4 years, it is imperative that we work tirelessly over the next few years so that we are able to purchase sufficient acreage to meet the zoning and licensing requirements for a wildlife sanctuary and expanded Earth Center.
What We Do
& WHAT MORE WE CAN DO WITH YOUR HELP!
We offer a five day a week, rain or shine farm based educational program, 11 1/2 months out of the year! That means we operate year round, only closing for the first two weeks of every July. (See our Programs Tab for pricing.)
Our goal is to inspire children, their families and even local businesses to connect with nature, care for the environment and celebrate the diversity of our multicultural world.
We believe that an eco-green environment is essential for the development of healthy minds and bodies. LTH’s unique farm setting coupled with plenty of surrounding nature, comfortably and uniquely creates an excellent foundation for your child’s future education.
Expect your child to spend 75% of his/her time outdoors daily!
Your generous donation, whatever it might be will allow us to:

- Give the Gift of Education by funding minimum of 5 scholarships a year
