Food & Agriculture

A turkey on Sharing Our Root’s 100-acre farm in Dakota County, Minn. The organization is developing a “Poultry-Centered Regenerative Agroforestry” system designed to build soil, clean water and provide economic benefits to the community.

We support efforts to build resilient agricultural systems that improve soil, air, water, and animal and human health.

The restoration of our landscapes is increasingly recognized as a critical pathway to address the climate crisis. By shifting our relationship to land and transitioning to regenerative farming systems, we create an immediate opportunity to address the climate crisis while building health and resilience in communities across the country.

We support organizations and movements in the United States working towards a regenerative and equitable transition of our food and farming system while building the resilience of regional farming communities and food systems. We also take a network-based approach to grantmaking. The program connects organizations working from a variety of perspectives and strategies in order to take action on a shared vision that builds healthy soil and thriving communities.
