The Minnesota Institute for Sustainable Agriculture is our parent organization. MISA is a unique collaboration between the University of Minnesota Extension, CFANS, and a handful of venerable local institutions dedicated to moving food and agriculture forward in Minnesota, the nation, and the world. This "Sustainer's Coalition" is comprised of:
- Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
- Land Stewardship Project
- Minnesota Food Association
- Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota
Among other local food heroes, we also admire and have had relationships with: HECUA, The Permaculture Research Institute Cold Climate, and Growing Lots Urban Farm.
