The Acornucopia Project's mission is to develop perennial based agriculture as an economically viable, environmentally beneficial, and socially dignified human endeavor. Regional hubs of worker owned cooperatives will increase the demand for highly nutritious tree products incentifying farmers and landowners to transition their pastures and croplands into native tree orchards, bringing balance to our checkbooks, our environment, and our diets,
As a landowner you cast an influential vote on the state of our environment. We are looking for land owners who want to partner with this ground breaking project. Please click here 3 times and say, "There is no place like home."
