Stewardship America is a charitable 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in Florida.
It operated first as the Florida Stewardship Foundation then as Stewardship America from 1994 through 2005, at which time all the projects it had carried out with Florida Panther license plate and foundation grants had been successfully completed.
Stewardship America is in the process of being restarted, with the renewal of its 501(c)(3) status underway. It works on initiatives that will engender a thriving rural economy, an economically robust agriculture, a healthy natural environment, viable rural communities, safe supplies of food and fiber, and potent actions to address climate change which, in part, will support the Fresh-to-the-Table Farms project (next column).
An update of the Privatelands.org website, which is linked to the Stewardship America's website, also is underway, describing the organization's previous work.
