Empowers a Farmer
We work with boots-on-the-ground associations in order to provide small-scale regenerative farmers with equipment, knowledge and financial support so they can better feed their communities and provide access to healthy, locally-grown food.
True change comes from farmerled, community-based, and boots-on-the-ground innovators. We are here to support the problem-solvers and change-makers working to grow food for their communities.
We leverage our profits and purpose to be a force for good. We focus on long term solutions to create positive impacts on farmers, their communities and the planet.Discover the Recipients
How It Works
The biggest hurdles when starting a farm or growing your own food is knowing how to do it profitably, having the right tools to work the land, and having access to startup funds.

Each are chosen by our Selection Partners to receive tools, access to knowledge, consultation, and financial aid.
