This organization is a coalition of farmers, educators, doctors, scientists, and business leaders aiming to expose the human and environmental impacts of chemical farming and offer a path forward through regenerative agricultural practices and accelerating the universal adoption of regenerative land management for the health of people and the planet. The organization addresses systemic change and scalability challenges facing our food and agriculture systems by focusing on three pillars: awareness, education, and economics.
RON FINLEY PROJECT:
This nonprofit teaches individuals how to transform food deserts into food sanctuaries and how to regenerate their lands into creative business models. It envisions a world where people know nutrition and where it comes from, and where all ages embrace the act of growing, knowing, and sharing the best of the earth’s fresh-grown food. South-Central Los Angeles, where Finley is from, is a food desert: a geographic location where access to healthy food options is extremely limited or nonexistent. Currently, 23.5 million people live in food deserts in the U.S., and cities with high African American and Latin American populations, including Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, New Orleans, and New York City, regularly top the list of those hit hardest by food scarcity.
