Several different nonprofit organizations and foundations are mainly focused on providing a particular type of service. It is important to note, however, that a nonprofit organization is not able to change a particular culture if it operates according to the values of the said culture. Since two of culture's most significant yet least sustainable values are growth and speed, there is a need to clarify what is meant for a culture to “grow.” A sustainable future relies not on growth in terms of size but perhaps leans toward growth in understanding, insight, and influence. This chapter looks into the story of the Northern Plains Sustainable Agriculture Society (NPSAS) and how this effort reflects creating a sustainable culture and a sound and sustainable food and agriculture system.

Keywords:   NPSAS, growth, speed, culture, sustainability, agriculture system
