All members of TIST, no matter where in the world they call home, follow the TIST Values. These Values are critical to our continued success and they are central to who we are as a community. These Values are:
How are we different?
We are volunteers
TIST is made up of farmers who volunteer to join the TIST community. They enjoy the education, farming knowledge, and helping the environment.
We develop and use best practices
When we work together, we can find ways to improve our farms that are right for our local area. We can also share our best ideas with other farmers nearby or far away.
We do the work ourselves in small groups
TIST is made up of small groups. We work together to develop best practices and improve our farms and our environment.
We use our head and our hands
We work hard with our head and our hands. Our commitment to the TIST Values means we do things the right way, not the easy way.
