Savanna Institute

The Savanna Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works with farmers and scientists to lay the groundwork for widespread agroforestry adoption in the Midwest US. Inspired by the native savanna ecosystems that once covered much of this region, the Savanna Institute conducts research, education, and outreach to support the growth of diverse, perennial agroecosystems.

Funding supports them in catalyzing the transition to resilient agriculture in the Midwest through education, research, and outreach. Funds are used to expand their capacity to work one-on-one with farmers across the region to develop agroforestry adoption and management plans for their land.
