Wes Jackson, The Land Institute

Wes Jackson, President of The Land Institute (founded in 1976)

Find green business solutions
I've followed the Land Institute for awhile now...because I grew up in a neighboring state and my mother was born near the organization's current location -- so I've visited eastern Kansas many times, even attended college there for a spell. But what really intrigues me is Wes Jackson's appreciation for the total, robust contribution of America's land resources to our well being.

My kudos for work well done...

holder Wes Jackson, President of The Land Institute (founded in 1976), was born in 1936 on a farm near Topeka, Kansas. After attending Kansas Wesleyan (BA Biology, 1958), he studied botany (MA University of Kansas, 1960) and genetics (PhD North Carolina State University, 1967). He was a professor of biology at Kansas Wesleyan and later established the Environmental Studies program at California State University, Sacramento, where he became a tenured full professor. He resigned that position in 1976.

Dr. Jackson’s writings include both papers and books. His most recent work, Rooted in the Land: Essays on Community and Place, co-edited with William Vitek, was released by Yale University Press in 1996. Becoming Native to This Place, published in 1994, sketches his vision for the resettlement of America's rural communities. Altars of Unhewn Stone appeared in 1987, and Meeting the Expectations of the Land, edited with Wendell Berry and Bruce Colman, was published in 1984. New Roots for Agriculture, 1980, outlines the basis for the agricultural research at The Land Institute.

The work of The Land Institute has been featured extensively in the popular media including The Atlantic Monthly, Audubon, National Geographic, Time Magazine, The MacNeil-Lehrer News Hour, and National Public Radio's "All Things Considered." Life magazine named Dr. Jackson as one of 18 individuals they predict will be among the 100 "important Americans of the 20th century," and Smithsonian included him in its list of "35 Who Made a Difference." He is a recipient of the Pew Conservation Scholars award (1990), a MacArthur Fellowship (1992), and Right Livelihood Award (Stockholm), known as "Alternative Nobel Prize" (2000).
