Land Stewardship Project (LSP) is a rural membership organization with 3,000 member households in the Upper Midwest, primarily Minnesota. Their mission is to foster an ethic of stewardship for farmland, promote sustainable agriculture, and develop sustainable communities.

The purpose of LSP’s Rural Organizing for Stewardship and Justice project is to build the power and momentum to create systemic change to our food, land, and agriculture system towards environmental stewardship and sustainable development.  They use an education-to-action approach to organize the power base necessary to win issue campaigns and effect long-term change.
