Senior Philanthropic Advisor Gwen Wurst recently sat down with Virginia Clarke, Executive Director of Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders (SAFSF). SAFSF is the nation’s only collaborative group for grantmakers and philanthropists with the common goal of supporting sustainable agriculture and food systems.

At a recent Donor-to-Donor education event, Virginia joined other food systems and conservation experts to share how philanthropy plays a role in supporting just food systems.

On the podcast, Gwen and Virginia discussed what projects SAFSF members are investing in, how they are engaging in advocacy and policy, and how SAFSF fosters collaboration and education across the country.

Listen to their conversation online, in the iTunes store and on Google PlayMusic.
