We believe that we can transform personal & community health & improve our impact on earth by building & sustaining collaborative agricultural, ecological and social systems. We believe that communities armed with knowledge & the skills of inquiry can transform food, farming & natural systems for the better.
youth & family empowerment to regenerate health:
“without wildlife, without farmers, without family, without care. . .
its just food.”

Increase soil organic matter over time, provide economic stability & fairness for farmers & workers, & create resilient regional ecosystems & communities
Protection of the natural environment through protection, conservation and regeneration: water, land, soil, wildlife, pollinators, biodversity
FAMILY, NEIGHBORHOOD, FOODSHED
“Everything having to do with food—its capture, cultivation, preparation, and consumption—represents a cultural act.” ~Massimo Montanari
