Kingston Land Trust
HELP RESTORE THE PINE ST AFRICAN BURIAL GROUND!
Featured Initiatives & Programs
Thanks to community support of over 250 contributions, we were able to purchase and protect the site! The Kingston Land Trust and our partner organization Harambee still need your help to raise the remainder of our $200,000 total goal for 2019 towards converting the site into an interpretive center.
A system of trails, promenades and complete streets that when fully developed will connect residents and visitors to Kingston’s natural, historic, cultural and commercial assets.
A Spanish immersion conversation organized by the Kingston Land Trust in collaboration with the Kingston YMCA Farm Project. We meet quarterly at hispanic restaurants in Kingston to eat a meal together and discuss local food and land initiatives.
Through the website portal, approved stewards (people seeking land) and landholders (people who own or manage land and are seeking stewards) can search for each other based on location and shared land use interests. We hope that this program will lead to the conversion of underused land into green amenities, while strengthening ties our community. Users are encouraged to contact each other to see if they are the right fit and to work out the details of a mutually beneficial land use arrangement.
Developing Our Own Community Land Trust: Affordable Homeownership on Protected Land. The Kingston Land Trust is a conservation land trust, but since we are in an urban area, we are looking to take on the new role of a Community Land Trust in order to provide permanently affordable homeownership opportunities on our land.
