What We Do

Founded in 2009, the Kathleen Barsotti Non-Profit for Sustainable Agriculture is founded in memory of Kathleen Barsotti. Our mission is to support the progressive growth of sustainable farms and their employees.

KBNP seeks to increase the resources that are available to farm workers and their families and to connect those individuals with the resources that do exist. Our programs include providing hundreds of backpacks filled with school supplies to the children of farm workers, providing a yearly college scholarship to a young-adult with ambitions of working in sustainable agriculture, suporting English as a second language classes, and educating the public on the importance of sustainable farms and their employees.
