Hear from the 2018 Cohort
I am departing so incredibly nourished — physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically. Some of the magic for me came from the thoughtful curation of the group, the intensity of the program content matched with holistic delivery. I have never experienced a week quite like this in my life… I will be digesting this experience for months to come and I sense this will be a point that will influence the course of the rest of my life.

[The program] truly empowered me to take big steps in growing my business by thinking strategically with a regenerative, growth mindset. The farming community will benefit from this level of engagement in activating farmer minds to the mission of regenerative farming.
