How can shipping food cross-country be healthier, more profitable, and more sustainable when we can grow right in our backyards?
Northeastern North Carolina’s economy should build upon – and benefit – our region’s greatest assets: our land, water, and communities. At Working Landscapes, we are creating more healthy and sustainable livelihoods for people in the Warren County, NC region. Our aim is to grow the local food system, revitalize our small towns, and help lead the transformations needed to address the climate crisis.
It all starts here.
At our ByWay Foods hub in downtown Warrenton, it’s all about local. We take local farm harvests and transform them into convenient prepared foods, including fresh-cut vegetables and heat-and-serve meals for our local schools and communities.
What We Do
As farmers confront the effects of climate change, a national movement toward climate-smart agriculture is underway. At Working Landscapes, we are helping farmers accelerate their transition thanks to a grant award from the USDA’s Partnership for Climate-Smart Commodities. Together with partner food hubs across North Carolina, we will offer financial and technical assistance to farmers to implement climate smart growing practices.
