Gifts of Land

The Land & Stewardship Legacies initiative provides a way for your family’s legacy on the land to continue by using it to support LSP’s work or to provide opportunities for a new generation of stewardship farmers.

LSP is able to accept gifts of farmland or other real estate from members or other friends of our organization. The Stewardship Legacy secures financial resources to support the work of the Land Stewardship Project now and into the future. The Land Legacy is distinguished by accepting gifts of suitable parcels of farmland that can be sold to promising graduates of LSP’s Farm Beginnings® program.

For more information about Gifts of Land click here. In an LSP video, members Dennis and Carol Johnson talk about how they used a gift of land to support what’s important to them. The video is available here. LSP would like to thank member Audrey Arner and the University of Minnesota-Morris for developing this video.
