We believe that the food system has broken down at many points, leading to an industrial, mono-crop system that is bad for both planet and people.
Mono-crop agriculture is susceptible to adverse climate events such as changes in precipitation and increased pests. Change is needed at every point along the agricultural supply chain, starting with the soil in which our food is grown.
We support projects that build soil health, promote the conversion of industrial farmlands to healthier farming methods, promote polyculture and biodiversity, protect existing ecosystems, provide access to farmers that will be good land stewards, make farming a viable way of life for a new generation of farmers, provide off-takes for non-industrial grains and crops, and help connect consumers to healthy, affordable food. Our focus is in Colorado and California, but programs across the Western United States will be considered.
