The Regenerate America Business Network

Regenerate America’s Business Network is comprised of companies that we believe are answering the call of future generations and actively raising awareness for soil health and/or actively transitioning supply to regenerative producers.

Participation in the Business Network is limited to ensure that each member is able to effectively work together to reform the 2023 Farm Bill and shift resources in support of regeneration. All participating companies have the opportunity to have a voice, learn, engage, and further the regenerative movement.

If you are interested in applying to become a member, please contact us at [email protected].

The Regenerate America Science Advisory

The Regenerate America Science Advisory is a non-partisan team of leading researchers of regenerative agriculture, soil health, agroecology, and sustainable food systems to provide strategic guidance as we anticipate providing final recommendations for the farm bill. The purpose of the advisory is to share the latest research findings, inform the campaign, and discuss research needs to advance regenerative agriculture and soil health. Science Advisors play an education role and do not do any direct advocacy work that could be in conflict with university policies.
