Our Mission

Sustainable Chesapeake’s mission is to cultivate prosperity through innovative solutions that benefit farms, communities and the Chesapeake Bay.

Our Focus

At Sustainable Chesapeake, we understand that ideal environmental solutions make good business sense.  We apply this principle to the most difficult pollution source in the Chesapeake Bay region – nonpoint source pollution –runoff that flows from the land to streams and rivers when it rains.

Our Approach

Projects that reduce pollution and that result in tangible benefits for people responsible for implementing them are the ones that are the most likely to be successful.  To that end, we build teams and develop projects that demonstrate how restoring the Chesapeake Bay can also achieve  multiple farm, business, and community goals.

Our Organization

Sustainable Chesapeake is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  We are governed by a board of directors with decades of combined experience in organizational leadership, agriculture, business and water quality.
