Scott is devoted to the White House Farm Foundation, a non-profit educational foundation he founded after his purchase of the 270 acre historic White House property in Luray, Virginia. Through his work with the Foundation, he hopes to enrich individuals with the knowledge of and involvement in our natural ecological systems, sustainable agriculture, holistic community planning, conservation, and respect for local history and culture. His desire is to work with the community and its partners to answer some of the large questions facing conservation and development today:

1. How do we live in balance with our environment?
2. How can we enhance the landscape to feed wildlife and ourselves?
3. Why is it important to conserve land?
4. How can we support our local economies?
