Mission Statement

The mission of the Nassau Land Trust (NLT) is to conserve land and preserve Nassau County's heritage for future generations. We work with landowners, communities, and others interested in enhancing and protecting open lands, farms, and natural resources.

Description

NLT is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation that accepts donations of land and conservation easements. We fulfill our mission by reaching out to landowners and facilitating their use of land conservation techniques. We provide creative land-use choices that respect the rights of landowners and reflect their individual goals. We also educate those involved in land use -- such as government officials, planners, accountants, and real estate brokers -- about the tools of land conservation.

Crossroads Farm at Grossmann’s is a certified organic vegetable farm in Malverne, Long Island. The farm is operated by the Nassau Land Trust under a license agreement from Nassau County, who acquired the farm with proceeds from the 2006 Environmental Bond Act.

After a successful first season in 2011, the farm now has thriving volunteer and education programs, as well as a farm stand for locally grown and produced foods. The farm also offers a CSA program where patrons can purchase a coupon book to redeem at the farm stand throughout the season.
