RegeNErate Nebraska's Regeneration Proclamation & Regenerative Resource Guide is a statement about the future of agriculture in Nebraska, as well as a guide that helps you support your Nebraska regenerative farmers and supporting businesses.
The Solution Lies In The Soil
RegeNErate Nebraska is a growing community of farmers and ranchers, tribes, businesses, urban consumers, organizations, and Nebraska residents working together to rebuild Nebraska's communities from the soil up.
RegeNErate Nebraska is focused on developing new regenerative food pipelines that connect rural and urban communities, and break down the problems that lead to lack of nutritional food access.
Regenerative farming and ranching practices used in Nebraska include minimizing tillage, muilti-species cover cropping, multiple crop rotations, implementation of livestock back onto the soil accompanied by holistic grazing practices, agro-forestry with tree intercropping, silvopasture on grazing lands, and degraded rangeland restoration.
GC Resolve is currently assisting farmers, tribes, and communities to meet their regenerative goals. If you would like to develop a local regenerative food system in your community please contact GC Resolve for consultation.
How These Farmers Are Confronting The Climate Crisis
NowThis was recently in Nebraska and Missouri talking to farmers about Climate Change and the 2019 Flood, The Green New Deal, and Regenerative Farming. Watch the short film below. It's time to join the conversation!
This multi-species diverse prairie creates happy cows and healthy soils, which store a lot of carbon.
In more arid areas like the Nebraska Sandhills holistic grazing management practices can improve native grass production,
which sinks more carbon, as well as creates more feed for the cattle.
Agro-forestry practices such as alley cropping help farmers grow more food per acre
and protect the soil from wind and water erosion.
Regenerative ag is not only for rural farmers but is also about replenishing underutilized urban spaces
and eliminating food access barriers.
