Working Farms Fund
Taking Action for Georgia's Local Food
The Conservation Fund: Georgia Working Farm Fund project permanently protects at-risk farmland, creates opportunities for ambitious, diverse farmers to scale up local food production, and through conservation easements and lease-to-own options, these farmers will come out of the program owning their own farms and building partnerships that will help them increase food production and market return.
Our Working Farms Fund was first launched in Atlanta and is currently being piloted in Chicago, with the goal to expand to other cities nationwide. Agriculture is rooted in a history of stewardship of the land and conservation principles. The Working Farms Fund will have lasting economic, social and environmental benefits not only for our farmers, but the communities they live in and serve.
