Regenerated Communities

Thriving rural communities, local food systems and equity in agriculture.

Through policy priorities 2, 4, 5

  1. Expanded viability of family farming and ranching:
    Limited corporate control, retained
    viable farm/range land (reduced land conversion rate by half, from 2,000 acres a day), and a legacy of fertile land for future farm families.
  2. Thriving rural communities:
    Farm dollars remain in the local economy; growing farm
    communities; refurbished regional infrastructure (and a strong tax base that supports local schools, hospitals, etc.).
  3. Healthy urban communities:
    Increased urban agriculture providing a direct connection to
    soil, compost and healthy food, and strengthened urban/rural synergies.
  4. Increased pathways to ownership and stewardship of land:
    Support and incentives for
    new/beginning farmers to access land; significant increases in acreage under ownership/management by BIPOC farmers (resulting in an overall increase in the number of farmers and ranchers in the US).
  5. Maximum impact of USDA programs:
    Equal quality and availability of service from
    USDA (quantitative and qualitative experience), and increased participation and representation in all USDA programs by BIPOC farmers and Native American tribes.
  6. Local job creation:
    New and restored jobs including in processing, distribution, and
    localized food systems.
