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

Soil Born Farms is a sanctuary within reach. I was looking for a space to hold my conflict transformation workshops where people could feel off the grid but without having to drive several hours, Soil Born Farms was the answer. The schoolhouse was the absolute perfect setting to do deep, transformative work. It contained all the elements I was looking for: surrounded by nature, quiet, clean, light-filled, and plenty of space for movement with a group of 20 to 25. The staff was incredibly kind and accommodating and made each experience an easeful and joyful one. When I picture holding future workshops, I always see them taking place on the farm. ~Rangineh Azimzadeh Tosang, Solh Resolutions International

When I tell people I'm happy to donate to Soil Born, people often ask me why they should give money to a farm. The reason is that Soil Born is much more than and different from most farms. As a non-profit organization, Soil Born depends on community support. Much of what is grown at Soil Born is distributed free to those without access to fresh, healthy food. In the spirit of cooperation#many people joining together to make something bigger happen than any of them could do on their own# hope you'll consider joining me to support the revolution that is changing the food landscape in Sacramento and that Soil Born is leading.

Apprenticeship is an opportunity to hone in on specific concepts such as pasture rotation, handling and packing of vegetables, orchard pruning, drip irrigation, working with volunteers, and organic certification requirements. The multi-faceted structure provides a baseline for seeing beyond the borders of just “farm work,” and brings in the aspects of community engagement and social enterprise to our apprenticeship.
