WHAT IS REGENERATE AMERICA™?
Regenerate America™ is an unprecedented coalition of farmers, businesses, nonprofits, and individuals from every corner of our country and all political stripes. Together, we are amplifying the voices of farmers and ranchers demanding that the 2023 Farm Bill shift resources & support towards regenerative agriculture. Regenerate America™ is convened by the national soil health nonprofit organization, Kiss the Ground.
WHO IS INVOLVED?
Regenerate America™ is a diverse, bipartisan coalition of citizens, farmers, ranchers, non-profits, and companies working together to transform the 2023 Farm Bill. The coalition is propelled by its working groups, guided by a Farmer Leadership Council and Steering Committee, and stewarded by Kiss the Ground.
WHY IS THIS COALITION IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW?
Healthy soil is the foundation of American resilience and prosperity, but the majority of soils we all rely on are severely degraded. We are losing topsoil 10x faster than we are replenishing it.
We can rapidly rebuild our soil by empowering farmers and ranchers to practice regenerative agriculture.
Current federal agriculture policy does more to hinder the adoption of regenerative production than to support it. This must change. Our coalition will leverage our collective power to put our six policy priorities at the heart of the 2023 Farm Bill – the major piece of legislation that determines our national approach to food and agriculture.
Together, we will revive our soil, our land and our communities, fostering opportunities for this generation and generations to come.
WHY IS REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW?
Regenerative agriculture rebuilds our soil, and does so faster than we ever thought possible. By combining Indigenous knowledge, holistic management, and cutting-edge science, regenerative agriculture makes farming and ranching more profitable, improves food quality and security, and repairs land function – providing countless benefits to our planet and our people.
