Our Mission:  The Big Bend Community Land Trust (BBCLT), located in Madesi territory, is dedicated to helping our tiny remote town and its residents by supporting community improvements, here in rural Shasta County, California. A land-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the BBCLT provides nutritional, educational, economic, social, and environmental opportunities for the residents in this forested mountain valley and riverside village. We seek to develop a model of rural community revitalization which can be replicated in other communities.

The 34-acre BBCLT Farm in “downtown” Big Bend (shown here in 2015) has undergone gradual changes and improvements, with much more to come.
