Who We Are:

We believe that restoring human to land connection is integral to creating a healthy, equitable human society. We value curiosity, empathy, honesty and humility. We are good at difficult conversations, and we frequently debate the tension and balance between profit and impact in our work. We turn down work that we do not believe in. We make mistakes and we believe that these experiences are an essential part of our process, our learning, and our successes.

We love the natural world, as it connects us to the work that we do. Whether we are sitting in a park or working at one of our field projects (helping with weeding, taking soil samples, or participating in animal chores), we are often our best selves are when we are outside. 

We come from different areas of working in food supply chains, ecology, business, conservation, agriculture, landscape design, and community development. Currently, although we bring different work experiences to our team, we come from similar backgrounds and race. We are working to create an inclusive workplace to welcome BIPOC colleagues and external stakeholders through team trainings, workshops, company and project commitments and goals, and a weekly team meeting that includes conversation and reflection on Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) within our team and our work.
