Portfolio / Marin Agricultural Land Trust
Marin Agricultural Land Trust was the first organization in the country to protect farmland from subdivision and development. For over 35 years, MALT has safeguarded the future of Marin’s local family farms, landscapes, healthy environment, and bounty of local food.
Many people from different walks of life care about MALT’s work for different reasons. From multi-generational farmers to urban gourmands, MALT connects with a wide variety of visitors in highly personalized ways.
Through a “Buy Local” portal, users connect with the products produced on MALT lands. This deepens the connection Bay Area residents have with the food grown in their backyard. Ultimately, people eat better food, local economies are strengthened, and the lands that sustain us are protected for future generations.
A customizable mapping tool connects the dots for users to better understand the stories behind the lands that have been protected. Moreover, it creates a sense of urgency to protect remaining unprotected farm land—before it’s too late.
A combination of expertise and rustic authenticity, MALT’s brand is rooted in matching lifestyle with a depth of professional knowledge. The result is a site that is as grounded as those who work the lands it represents. It is a place where many different people can come together to “break bread” and share a common goal.
