RBW

As we look to our future in Kingston, we're eager to take part in the local community efforts. In seeking a partner that aligns with our purpose to positively transform environments, communities, and lives, we identified Kingston Land Trust.⁠

Based in Kingston, they work collaboratively to protect socially and environmentally significant land and address inequities by making land accessible to the community, including habitat sanctuaries, heritage sites, food gardens and rail trails and by supporting sustainable affordable homes initiatives.⁠⁠

After discussing the available opportunities for RBW to get involved, we were thrilled to have the chance to contribute to Kingston Land Trust's Land in Black Hands. When asked to share their thoughts on our shared vision for the impact on Kingston, here's what they had to say:⁠

The Kingston Land Trust's Land in Black Hands program responds to systemic land dispossession and possession by facilitating Black land access, ownership, and stewardship in the Kingston area, in the spirit of cooperation and ecological integrity. We are so appreciative of RBW's commitment to this fundamental work and the potential it will unlock for our community.
