Christopher Mann is currently developing a green "smart growth/zero-run-off", conservation design for a cluster of homes community project called Fields Neighborhood in East Troy, WI. He previously established a number of enterprises to support biodynamic/organic/sustainable agriculture research and education. He has also created land trusts in England, Switzerland and the USA in order to provide security for organic farming, community development and healthy food. Of these, the Yggdrasil Land Foundation is a support organization to RSF, the Biodynamic Farming & Gardening organization and the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute. While teaching at a Waldorf school in England, he built a small development for community called Michael Fields in Sussex and a financial institution, (now the British branch of the Netherlands bank Triodos). In 1983, Christopher and his wife, Martina, founded the Michael Fields Agricultural Institute and served on its Board of Trustees for many years.
