Building a Better Farming Future for America
BuildBackBetter.FARM promotes a diverse food, agriculture, livestock and fisheries system. We promote low-input, no-till and agroecological farming techniques that regenerate our soils, while keeping planet-warming carbon dioxide sequestered and locked in the soil where it belongs. Let’s work together to rethink and rebuild our farming systems so we can get back to a better and more sustainable farm and food system that will benefit our entire ecosystem.
Want to learn how to grow your own food? Are you a farmer who is not sure whether or not to convert to a regenerative system that incorporates cover crops, crop rotation and allows more plant, animal and microbial biodiversity on your farm? BuildBackBetter.FARM is focused on changing our conventional farming system, getting more people into farming or growing their own food, supporting a just transition to a more sustainable and just farming system while promoting a better way forward for our planet. The way we are growing the majority of our food is not sustainable. The large conventional farming techniques over the last 30 years have depleted the soil so much that we only have about 60 harvests left. We can adopt better farming techniques that regenerate our soils, sequester carbon, and help in our battle against a changing climate. This is the biggest challenge we have ever faced and we are ready to take action.
We are dedicated to building community while promoting sustainable farming practices that keep planet-warming carbon dioxide locked and sequestered in the soil and out of the atmosphere. We are dedicated to dismantling racial injustices on the farm and in our world and will be a voice for all marginalized peoples to create a just and sustainable future. We join with every individual and institution that seeks to use their power and privilege to create a free, and democratic society, and a healthy and just world for all.
Infinite Number of Options
The infinity symbol is the icon for BuildBackBetter.FARM because it represents an infinite number of possibilities as we begin to make the myriad of changes to our farming systems.
We are all connected by the air we breathe, by the land we farm and by the water we drink to sustain us. Climate change has laid bare the inequities in our soils and in our communities and in the air we breathe. We envision a world were farming practices begin with the end in mind and that these practices are in harmony with nature and our ecosystem. We will measure success by the ton, the amount of carbon sequestered in our soils.
We pledge to increase wellness through equitable access to healthy food, thriving gardens, and urban green spaces.
