The Lyson Center for Civic Agriculture and Food Systems is a food systems development program in Ithaca, New York. Since 2013, it has been a project of the Center for Transformative Action, a nonprofit organization affiliated with Cornell University. The mission of the center is "To provide practical research-based information, tools, programs and services that lead to productive collaboration between food systems scholars, professionals, and active residents engaged in food systems development work at the community level."
The center was named after Thomas A. Lyson, a Cornell University sociologist who researched extensively on "food and agriculture based community development" and coined the term civic agriculture. The Center's current projects include publishing the Journal of Agriculture, Food Systems, and Community Development and facilitating the North American Food Systems Network. The Lyson Center also publishes the Sustainable Food Systems Sourcebook.
