Ingenuity Innovation Center is a community-supported innovation center that focuses on creating and building sustainable solutions. Everything we do is shared using an open source platform. We hold space to bring together people from all generations and backgrounds to be able to ignite their hearts and minds and discover their own passion. Our goal is to be able to create whole-systems thinkers and feelers to be able to build a better and more sustainable world for generations to come.
Ingenuity Innovation Center is headquartered in St. Helens, OR. Founded in September 2012, this center is situated on 20 acres of land in the rural area of Columbia County. Here, we have two homes, two shops and a large 40′ x 60′ community center. Our 1,500 square foot greenhouse showcases aquaponics (the merger of growing fish and vegetables). Here, we produce an abundant amount of organic, GMO-free produce that we sell to local restaurants and customers. In addition to creating sustainable solutions, we also focus on developing new economic models and benefit organizations that help foster community empowerment. On January 2nd, we registered as one Oregon’s inaugural benefit organizations.
