What does it mean for a nonprofit organization to be accountable? The Land Connection defines accountability as our responsibility to be transparent with our donors, beneficiaries, community, and other stakeholders by making information available about our finances, the effectiveness of our programs, and our progress towards achieving our mission. We invite you to use the documents below to follow our commitment to building a sustainable and resilient local food and farm system. For reference, The Land Connection’s mission and vision are as follows:
The Land Connection’s mission is to train farmers in resilient, restorative farming techniques; inform the public about the sources of our food and why that matters; and work to protect and enhance farmland so that we, and generations to come, will have clean air and water, fertile soil, and healthy, delicious food.
The Land Connection envisions community-based food systems in which every farmer has the opportunity to protect our environment by growing food in a sustainable manner and every person has access to local, nutritious foods.
Having a mission and vision is one thing, but constantly and consistently implementing action steps and working to elevate your work to more closely align with and achieve your mission and vision is another. The Land Connection is always pushing to do better, and we hope that our actions speak to that.
The Land Connection uses annual impact reports as an overview of our efforts from the past year to succeed in our mission. In each of these reports, you can find financial information, program impact, and more. Check back for annual updates!
