Land Stewardship Definition
Land Stewardship is doing the best by the land you own or manage. We generally think caring for the land means keeping it the way it is, but as much of our land has degraded true stewardship entails restoring ecosystem function. Because we’ve lived with and on deteriorated landscapes for so long we’ve collectively lost memory of how vibrant our lands can be. The soundest land stewardship restores ecological processes so that soil health, the water cycle and biodiversity are enhanced.
