About Us

Our Mission:

  • Advocate solutions for the community of Grayson County, Virginia and the surrounding area.
  • Increase the productivity and expand economic opportunities for local farmers, forest owners, and other citizens.
  • Practice sustainable and equitable management of natural resources and the environment.

Loosely modeled on the Australian Landcare movement, Grayson LandCare was incorporated in 2008. A landcare group is a community-based group of members working on projects that contribute to environmental, social and economic outcomes.

Grayson LandCare has adopted the member driven model to promote the triple bottom line of economy, environment and community. Projects led by the membership include the Free Market, Independence Farmers Market, the Grayson County Permaculture group and Land Stewardship contest, among other initiatives.  Monthly presentations featuring topics of local interest  are always open to the public.
