Happy Dancing Turtle is a nonprofit organization that started in Pine River, Minnesota in the early 2000’s. This mission of our organization is to build, demonstrate, and promote sustainable living in ways that are economically and ecologically practical.
Now, we’re extending our reach. One of our team members recently relocated to the Winona/Trempealeau area, starting the new Driftless Region of Happy Dancing Turtle. Our goal is to promote sustainability and stewardship in this unique area of the Midwest through a variety of environmental education activities, outreach initiatives, and collaborations with regional organizations.
At Happy Dancing Turtle, S.O.I.L.s is what we do. It means the practice and promotion of Sustainability; Outreach to our Minnesota community; the Innovation to develop meaningful programs and spur local entrepreneurship; Learning/Sharing by offering workshops, conferences, and classes; and providing Leadership and fostering champions in our communities.
