Farm Commons

Farm Commons + Made by We

Farm Commons blends best farming practices with community, legal resources and webinars. 

They are a small non-profit doing a world of good for sustainability-minded farmers. 

Farm Commons helps these farmers become empowered to take action related to legal issues that affect their operations. Farm Commons are leaders of sustainable farm law and provide free legal advice. In some cases, they even provide representation for farmers, and assist in building the capacity for more attorneys to do the same around the US.

Made by We had the incredible opportunity to work with the founder of Farm Commons and Echoing Green Fellow, Rachel Armstrong, over the course of several engagements to create print materials, custom illustrations and a new website platform for the organization.

Throughout the web-design process, the Made by We goals were two-fold: (1) make the website easy for the Farm Commons team to update and build in on a regular basis, and (2) make sure the content is easy to find and engaging to read for those who may prefer to spend their days working outdoors rather than clicking at a computer.

Our development collaborators, Scot Self & Ted Stein, were of great help, creating a custom Drupal site that is powerful as well as easy to use.
