Fostering Sustainable Agriculture through Research, Education and Policy since 1984

The Mission

We are a non-profit organization with the mission to nurture the ecological, social and economic resiliency of food and farming systems through education, research, policy, and market development.

We envision an ever-creative cultural process in which farmers and consumers create agricultural landscapes with healthy regional systems of land use, food production and distribution.

Since our founding in 1984, we have worked to realize this vision.
