Wallace Center envisions a future where all communities have the power to nourish themselves and regenerate ecosystems through just food and agriculture systems. At the heart of these systems are dynamic networks of people connected through interdependent relationships with each other and the land. Recognizing the power of connectivity and collaboration in realizing this vision, the Wallace Center is committed to transparent communication about our work and impact.
On this page, you’ll find overviews of our projects, partnerships, and organizational culture. We invite your feedback, reflections, and questions as we continue this work. None of it would be possible without the ongoing partnership and collaboration of countless individuals and organizations and numerous others who engage in our programs, support our staff, and share our vision for the future of food and farming. Thank you.
