Sustaining Our Rural Economy

Working Landscapes is a non-profit organization based in Warren County, NC. Our mission is to create more sustainable livelihoods for people in the Warren County region through stewardship of natural and cultural assets.

What is a working landscape? It’s a place that works—economically, environmentally, and socially. A working landscape is:

A productive landscape—a place where farms, forests and small towns all contribute to a vibrant economy and community;

A healthy landscape—both in terms of environmental and human health;

An authentic landscape—in which we recognize that our opportunities are rooted in our natural, cultural, and human assets.

We invite you to learn more about our vision for the future of the Warren County region and join us as we create opportunity in this place we love.

Lloyd's Bakery, which has been operating out of Working Landscapes' Food Hub cafe/kitchen, is closing; its last day of operations will be March 31. For health reasons, proprietor Susan Long is going to be taking a break from baking. We will miss Susan's baking, and we really appreciate the contribution her bakery made to downtown Warrenton. She has been great to work with, and we wish her the best!

For lovers of baked treats, the good news is that a new bakery/cake venture will be starting soon in the same spot! During the transition, Working Landscapes will be keeping the door open--Kierra and Amanda will continue to serve coffee and espresso drinks with a smile! The hours will remain the same for the time being. Stop in and pay them a visit!
