by supporting vital operations, infrastructure, and staff needs.

About the fund

Caring for the Commons is Agrarian Trust’s annual fund. Your support goes directly towards the solid foundation needed to cover vital staff salaries and operating costs. Additionally, the Caring for the Commons Fund enables Agrarian Trust to cover some Commons’ expenses beyond the initial purchase cost of properties such as  infrastructure, pollinator programs, solar installations, and so much more.
