- Ellen said… this is way cool! so many of these organizations are ones that i wish i could support (but i’m in college, so that’s not happening.) i have to say the PCC farmland trust is my favorite, because it’s local to seattle and because of its ideology. April 15, 2009 11:04 AM
The non-profit PCC Farmland Trust works to secure and preserve farmland in Washington State and move it into organic production. It is believed to be the only 501(c)(3) land trust in the United States dedicated to organic farmland preservation.
By preserving the land for organic farming, the Trust is not only setting aside land for organic farming and wildlife habitat, but is supporting the continued livelihood of local farmers and the farming community, and is increasing the availability of local, fresh organic foods.
Through its efforts, the PCC Farmland Trust helps create community and fosters a sense of partnership between the people who grow the food and the people who eat it. This includes the individuals and organizations who through the years have shown their concern for saving farmland by supporting the Trust with their donations — large or small.
To learn more about the PCC Farmland Trust, check out their website! And remember, every time you purchase a Stonyfield Farms product, 10% of their profits are donated to an environmentally-friendly organization!
