The Land Stewardship Project envisions a food and farming system and thriving, healthy communities that work for everyone, no exceptions.
Whether Black or white, immigrant or Indigenous, working class or middle class, queer or straight, man, woman, or non-binary, we all deserve dignified, productive, and creative lives.
Racism, patriarchy, and economic injustice are major barriers to accomplishing the Land Stewardship Project’s mission. Therefore, we must dismantle these systems of oppression and lift up collective liberation so we can all be free to live healthy and vibrant lives together.
As we care for the soil, we participate in the healing of the land. As we work to understand each other and eliminate oppression, we participate in the healing of community. Because we believe people and the land belong together, these aspects of stewardship and healing are inseparable.
Racial Justice Cohorts
During the past few years, the Land Stewardship Project has convened racial justice cohorts during which participants, working with people of color, learn how they can advance justice and equity in their communities. To participate in an upcoming cohort, contact one of the LSP organizers listed in the sidebar on the right side of this page.
- Abigail Hindson reminds us that we need to move beyond fear and white silence to stand up for the common good.
- Dayna Burtness talks about how structural racism is real and that we need to pull together and have a sense of urgency around implementing solutions together.
- Ben Doherty reminds us that when we talk about working to make things better for future generations, we should be working to do that for everybody’s kids and grandkids.
- Eva Barr says, “If we’re committed to diversifying our fields in the interest of building our soil, we need to be committed to diversifying our society on the landscape to save our planet.”
