a call to support the fruits of labor

Posted: June 20 2010

Living Lands Agrarian Network is a non-profit organization that offers training and mentorship to the next generation of farmers in Nevade City, CA.  Our unique model of cooperative farming integrates ecological education, community involvement, resource sharing, and celebration around the food we grow right here in our neighborhoods.  We practice and promote localized ecological farming for the profound benefit it has on ourselves, our neighbors and the planet.

We can’t do this work alone – we need your help. For the past three years all of these activities have been funded on a shoe string out of our own pockets. But this work is for the benefit of the community, local and broad, and it should be funded by folks who believe in it and have a bit to spare. Plus, this will help the farmers make a living! One way you can directly support our work in Nevada county is by becoming a member of the Living Lands Agrarian Network.  In gratitude for your membership and support, we can offer you the following perks:
