Our New Agrarian program helps to ensure that living and working knowledge of these practices, and the landscape itself, is stewarded into the future.
Our Education program, including our annual conference and open source publications, creates a space for our coalition to share ideas and resources, and for the general public to learn about the critical role working lands play in the health of our food systems, communities, and our planet.
Our Carbon Ranch Initiative is working to build the capacity of producers, land managers, and technical service providers to implement land management practices focused on mitigation of and adaptation to climate change.

Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center (PNASH)

“The Pacific Northwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center at the University of Washington was established in 1996 and is part of a vital national infrastructure dedicated to the prevention of illness and injury among agricultural producers, workers, and their families. The center works to achieve this goal through partnerships with key stakeholders in the Northwest region (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington) and it works collaboratively with other regional centers to formulate national programs and policies in agricultural health and safety. Since the Center’s inception, it has worked to engage the three major agricultural sectors in the Northwest: farming, forestry, and fishing. The Center reflects a cross-disciplinary, multi-institutional, and geographically diverse set of initiatives whose efforts focus primarily on populations not well represented in current research, including hired laborers, migrant/seasonal workers, women, and children.”
