Stewardship & Conservation

Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture

 

Commitment to Stewardship

Through our work at PMR, we aim to improve the health and well-being of people and place by: 
 
  1. Engaging students, artists, and community members of all ages to explore the interconnection of agricultural practices and land stewardship. 
  2. Carrying out ecologically and economically resilient agricultural activities in order to facilitate their development, replication and implementation on local farms and ranches.
  3. Joining forces with educators, researchers, and nonprofit partners to study our interaction with a biodiverse landscape.
  4. Grounding our work, caring for and sharing the ranch’s cultural, historic, and natural resources in a strong sense of place and community.
 
This high desert region is the traditional territory of the Wasco, Warm Springs, and Paiute peoples. Today Warm Springs Country is home to a thriving community recognized as the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. As we work to support the long-term resilience of this ecosystem and its people, the Pine Meadow Center for Arts & Agriculture recognizes the many ways that indigenous people continue to shape, create, and care for these lands.
