Stephanie joined The Land Institute in 1995. It was a Leadership Salina class taken while deputy city clerk that first piqued her interest in The Land. During her time here she has seen the organization grow from a staff of 12 and an annual budget of $490,000 to a current staff of 30 and an annual operating budget of $4.2 million. Steph was raised on a farm in Russell County, Kansas, and believes that perennial polycultures can address many of the environmental issues plaguing her native state of Kansas, as well as the rest of the world.
