Lightstone's mission is to serve as a regional education
and demonstration center for practicing and supporting sustainable family
farming, natural resource management and rural community development. Programs
- Future Stewards. An experiential training, paid apprenticeship and
community stewardship learning program for high school and college students in
the stewardship of natural and human resources.
- Farm Center. Our 562 acre certified organic farm at the headwaters
of the Potomac River in Pendleton County, West Virginia demonstrates sustainable
agricultural practices, wetlands restoration, eco- and agro-forestry and
Community Supported Agriculture.
- Community Food Systems. Providing technical and financial support
to a co-operative marketing network of diversified farms, creating markets for
locally-grown food and enhancing access to healthy food.
- Community Economic Development. The Lightstone Community
Development Corporation (LCDC) was established in 1994 to create and retain jobs
in the Potomoc Highlands by providing technical and financial assitance in rural
communities having a large portion of their population with low incomes.
Micro-loans for sustainable enterprises, supporting area farmers' markets and
bolstering local recycling efforts are a few of LCDC's activities
