Crosshatch Center for Art & Ecology

Crosshatch builds strong communities through the intersections of art, farming, ecology and economy. Crosshatch envisions communities that are grounded in place: where people connect through stories, music, art, shared work, and food and where the economy and culture are rooted in the restoration of the earth and its people. Crosshatch promotes the well-being of rural communities using two essential strategies: (1) Creating regionally specific, place-making programs that integrate typically siloed community building approaches (e.g., art, ecology, agriculture and economics); and (2) Hatching prototypes and toolkits designed to help people achieve economic success while creating measurable improvements to the culture of our region.
