About Us



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


We work in partnership with farmers, agronomists, and water quality specialists throughout the Chesapeake Bay region to identify the most effective conservation practices and then work to bring resources to farmers implementing them. We understand that the best water quality protection practices are ones that bring multiple benefits (such as improved yields, saved time, or increased resilience to extreme weather events) to the farms where they are implemented.


Sustainable Chesapeake is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in 2012 to serve as a bridge between farmers and the environmental community.  Members of our board of directors bring decades of experience in organizational leadership, business management, agriculture, and water quality to further our mission.
