Land Stewardship Project
Amanda Babcock is the State Policy Organizer for the Land Stewardship Project (LSP), a grassroots membership organization with the mission to foster an ethic of stewardship for the land, promote sustainable agriculture, and develop healthy communities. She has been on staff with LSP for two years, organizing with rural and farmer members in Minnesota to transform the farm and food system to be sustainable, equitable and just. Amanda has a B.S. in Environmental Science and will soon have a M.A. in Advocacy and Political Leadership.
During her time with LSP, Amanda has worked with the Izaak Walton League on securing state funding for the Forever Green Initiative at the University of Minnesota, which is developing and building markets for profitable cover crops and perennials that build soil health, sequester carbon, and clean our water. In her talk, she will discuss LSPís holistic approach to the biggest crises we face, from climate change to the farm crisis, and how each person can play a role in tackling them.
