TCALT- Twin Cities Agricultural Land Trust


The Twin Cities Agricultural Land Trust is a community driven network that provides advocacy, holds land, facilitates and advocates for affordable ownership and/or leasing of agricultural land by growers, and connects stakeholders to resources and education for people seeking long term, affordable land access to grow food.


Our region will have permanent and sufficient land – with a diverse array of land tenure options – for people who seek to grow food and meet the food needs of local communities by using agricultural practices that sustain landscapes. Agriculture and food production will be recognized as a valuable land use and economic engine in our metropolitan region.


The Twin Cities Agricultural Land Trust holds that permanent access to affordable land is the foundation of a healthy local food economy, including a commitment to:

  • Public well-being associated with agricultural land use, including healthy soil, air, and water and the use of agricultural  land use practices that sustain this well-being
  • Community empowerment, focusing on equitable access to and control of land and models of land tenure that respect difference, collaboration, and inclusivity

How are we working to achieve this?
