What happens in Iowa affects the world.
Iowa is the No. 1 contributor to the Dead Zone in the Gulf of Mexico. We import nearly 90% of our food. We rely on China and Japan for most of our agricultural economy. The Sustainable Iowa Land Trust permanently protects Iowa land to grow healthy, natural table food.
Our Impact is Clear:
- Cleaner water and Healthier soils
- Young people and new Americans on the land
- Diversified local economies
- Increased supply of fresh, organic food
- Mitigated climate change
