The NM Healthy Soil Working Group is a grassroots advocacy group. Teamwork, coalition-building and consensus are key tenets of our process and we use policy as an effective change-making and organizing tool.

Our mission is to achieve rapid adoption of healthy soil principles, resulting in greater ecological and human well being, significant water infiltration, rural prosperity, and climate resilient communities. We support land managers by offering resources, building coalitions, and advancing consensus based soil stewardship, while creating favorable government policy and raising active awareness in our civil society.
