FOR NEXT GENERATION FARMERS LAND ACCESS "Land is the basis of freedom, justice, and equality." - Malcolm X LEARN more Just launched: AGRARIAN COMMONS

 

VISION

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

RATIONALE

We are in the midst of 400 million acres of U.S. land changing hands as a generation of farmers and ranchers retires. Next generation farmers struggle with land access, affordability, and tenure. In this critical moment of transition, innovative models of ownership and stewardship are needed to heal the land and grow food sustainably.

 

 

WORK

Agrarian Trust is innovating in land ownership, access, tenure, and equity opportunities to transform our relationships to the land and each other. Our work is building the issue and framing solutions, collaborating with stakeholders and collective efforts, and creating the local Agrarian Commons to support the next generation of farmers and ranchers and foster a regeneration of the land and care for the Earth. We organize for racial and gender equity as an integral part of our work toward environmental and climate justice.
