Our 2018-2019 Capital Campaign, Putting Down Roots, is launched! See our campaign brochure for details about plans and goals for Agraria, and how you can offer your ideas and support during this crucial campaign. For commemorative naming, see our naming opportunities page. And we found a confirmation of—and an eloquent plea for—an ecosystems focus in Charles Eisenstein’s Climate: A New Story, published a few months ago. As part of our annual campaign, we will be happy to ship you a copy of Charles’ Climate, a New Story, for your $100+ contribution!
