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.
