Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society

Our mission: To promote agriculture & food systems that build healthy land, people, communities & quality of life, for present & future generations.

Our vision & work: We recognize the essential relationship between healthy local agriculture & a strong local food system; a relationship that benefits from food grown & processed locally. This adds quality & security, as well as social & ecological responsibility & benefits to the our communities. It is this understanding that motivates NSAS's work to strengthen & enhance these systems together. Our work spans across Nebraska.

The Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society (NSAS) represents a voice for positive change. We are a member-run organization promoting sustainable agriculture and food systems. Sustainable agriculture is an agriculture that is ecologically sound, economically viable and socially responsible. Its focus: the production of healthy food that provides a secure food supply for the community, a secure income for the family farms and a healthy land for all of its inhabitants. Our membership includes farmers, ranchers, gardeners, retailers, home and institutional food consumers, educators and researchers. Our purpose is to serve each of these constituencies to accomplish our mission of building, ?¢ï¿½?�?healthy land, people, communities and quality of life for present and future generations.?¢ï¿½?�? Our activities include the production of a bi-monthly newsletter, an annual ?¢ï¿½?�?Healthy Farms and Foods?¢ï¿½?�? conference, a food buying/selling network, an informational network for members, numerous farm tours/presentations/training opportunities, and collaborations (past projects and/or current partners) with Farmers, Buy Fresh Buy Local Nebraska, Slow Food Nebraska, Slow Food Omaha, Nebraska Food Cooperative, Nebraska Local Foods Network, UNL's Good/Fresh/Local, Community CROPS, RC&D's throughout Nebraska, NRCS, Nebraska Sheep and Goat Producers, Center for Rural Affairs, Omaha City Sprouts, UNL Organic Program, Land Stewardship Project, Farmer's Markets throughout the state, NCR-SARE, Acres USA, and the Rodale Institute. We partner with other organizations in the region and nation to promote sustainable agriculture on a broad basis.
