Invest in Your Community Farm

Support Our Fundraising Drive

I do not allow myself to be overcome by hopelessness, no matter how tough the situation. I believe that if you just do your little bit without thinking of the bigness of what you stand against, if you turn to the enlargement of your own capacities, just that itself creates new potential. ~Vandana Shiva

Soil Born Farms emerged from the hearts of changemakers in 2000, a vision grounded in hard work, a commitment to the greater good, perseverance, teamwork and love. With imagination, we move towards new possibilities. We think of ourselves and our donors as co-creators helping to build a local food system where everyone has what they need. We remember sacred traditions and integrate regenerative agriculture practices that honor right relationship with the land and each other. Creating the Center for Food, Health & the Environment is the work of today infused with the vision of a healthier and more equitable tomorrow. We need your financial support to continue this invaluable work.

Regenerative agriculture provides answers to the soil crisis, the hunger crisis, the health crisis and the climate crisis and the crisis of democracy

~Dr. Vandana Shiva

Regenerating Our Soil

Soil Born Featured in Comstock’s Magazine

Read the Comstock’s Magazine article about regenerative agriculture practices in our area. Soil Born Farm’s shift toward a regenerative management plan is slow and one of continuous learning that strategically introduces new agricultural methods. As the farm reopens to the public—that’s expected late spring or early summer—those practices will have an even stronger presence in the farm’s (urban agriculture educational) curriculum.
