Stewardship & Food

LSP potluck meal.

The Land Stewardship Project believes a community based food system is a just food system: one in which food is produced with a high level of stewardship for our soil and water, and with justice for all people. A just food system honors the flavor, texture and aroma of food produced at a community scale, and celebrates the place and the people who produce it. It delivers a fair profit for farmers and everyone in a short, value-based supply chain, and is accessible and affordable.

One key way LSP is pursuing a just, sustainable food system for all is through our Community Based Food Systems Program. LSP Community Based Food work is focused on three main areas of work:

Food Systems & Land Stewardship—making the connection between how our land is farmed, the health of our environment, and our own food choices.
