VISION

Nationally-supported, community-held land and agrarian property that supports sustainable food production, ecological stewardship, community vitality, and equitable land access for the next generation of farmers and ranchers.

RATIONALE

We are in the midst of 400 million acres of U.S. land changing hands as thousands of farmers and ranchers retire, yet next generation farmers struggle to access land. Innovative models of ownership and stewardship are needed to support the next generation, heal the land, and grow food sustainably.

 

 

WORK

We innovate in land ownership and access to transform our relationships to the land and each other, fostering regenerative agriculture and care for the Earth. We build the issue and reframe solutions, collaborating with communities of stakeholders to create the Agrarian Commons in support of the next generation of farmers and ranchers. We work for racial and gender equity as an integral part of our efforts toward environmental and climate justice.
