Founded in 1972, the Piedmont Environmental Council (PEC) works throughout Virginia's central and northern Piedmont region[1] to safeguard the landscapes, communities and heritage of the Piedmont by involving citizens in related public policy and land conservation.

PEC's headquarters is located in Warrenton, VA. However, there is a satellite office in Charlottesville. The staff of four in PEC's Charlottesville office work with citizens to solve the many land use and conservation challenges facing the Charlottesville and Albemarle area.

Buy Fresh Buy Local

In 2006, PEC launched Virginia's first Buy Fresh Buy Local chapter in Charlottesville, which has since expanded to include six other chapters. In addition to the annual printed guides sent to area homes, PEC is also hosts and maintains the Buy Fresh Buy Local website.


In 2017, the PEC and the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission were awarded a "Strengthening Systems" grant from the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation to promote construction of greenways and trails in the region. [2]


The Charlottesville office is located near the Downtown Mall in Suite 700 of the King Building (410 East Water St) and welcomes visitors. Coordinates:Erioll world.svg.png 38°01′45″N 78°28′45″W / 38.02909°N 78.479256°W / 38.02909; -78.479256
