The Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit promoting regenerative agriculture in service of our natural environment, local economies and human health.

Based on a 225 acre working farm in Cold Spring, NY, we advance local food production here in our region as well as educate a national audience about efforts to regionalize food and agriculture. We are inspired by, and contribute to, aligned work far beyond the borders of the Hudson Valley.
