Covenant Pathways is a Native-led organization located on the Navajo reservation whose mission is to teach soil restoration techniques to Native farmers. Restoring soils to good health—through forest restoration and planting trees, managing grazing lands so they accumulate soil carbon, and using “regenerative” farming techniques to rebuild croplands—is one of the world’s most promising climate solutions.
Over the next two years, the team at Regeneration Midwest, in partnership with the Organic Consumers Association, will be executing an ambitious research agenda to build the evidence base about the health and health equity benefits of regenerative farming.
What does it look like when a community decides to take climate change head-on? What could an effective solution mean for the health of people and the planet?
