In pursuit of a new strategic plan, Farm & Wilderness collected a massive amount of data from the community, the board of trustees and the year-round staff. Recently, the strategic planning committee organized this information into eight Focus Areas with specific goals/strategies for each.  This material was presented to key members of the organization for review and prioritization. Participants voted on their top three in each category and had the opportunity to add any new goals they thought might be missing or comment on any they thought might be off-base.  

The eight Focus Areas are still being further refined, but below is the current list in no particular order:

  • Social Justice, Inclusivity and Equity 
  • Farm and Natural Resources 
  • Financial Sustainability 
  • Build/Expand Farm & Wilderness Community 
  • Make Farm & Wilderness a “Great Place to Work” 
  • Create Partnerships 
  • Enhance Operational Excellence 
  • Promote Youth Development 

The committee’s next goal is to integrate feedback from previous meetings, strengthening the focus areas through collaborative editing.
