Testimonials:

I learned a lot from the Soil Health Academy. People have to understand the difference between soil and dirt. Soil has all the microbes! Our elders knew how to ranch, how to herd sheep and cattle instead of just letting them roam freely. I appreciate the opportunity to participate. I was really thankful to be among those participants, connect with like minded people and make friends.

Hasbidi To’ Ranch, Navajo Nation
The Soil Health Academy has jump-started our journey to regenerate our soils. The course addresses practical principles to implement on our farm to build soil health, increase profitability, and enable our future generations to thrive on the land. The real life examples from those who have implemented these principles help us know we can make regeneration work here in New Mexico.
