Our Urban Campus

Located in North Troy, New York. The Sanctuary for Independent Media is a constellation of urban grow lots, residency spaces, outdoor performance and gathering spaces, and the NATURE Lab environmental education building.

At the center of our campus stands an old church – the Sanctuary – which serves as our hub. The Sanctuary is home to Sanctuary Radio studios, indoor production and gallery spaces, and a kitchen where community meals are prepared with urban-grown vegetables from the Collard City Growers gardens. To the north is Freedom Square, outdoor event space with a mosaic stage. To the south is Collard City Growers, NATURE Lab (incl. People’s Health Sanctuary), L-lot, and the residency housing.
