National Healthy Soils Policy Network
Launched early in 2018, the National Healthy Soils Policy Network is a group of farmer-centered organizations that serve sustainable, organic, beginning, and/or family farmers.
The organizations work in their states to advance policies that support farmers and ranchers in using practices that improve soil health and have other climate and environmental health benefits.
Members understand the importance of using farmer-informed policy to scale up on-farm practices.
How The Network
We share examples and approaches to using public policy and public funding that scale up the use of healthy soil practices and contribute to more resilient, healthy and just farming systems
We share campaign strategies, stories, messaging and educational materials
The farmer-centered members of the Network learn from and support each other with information sharing, pooled funding, and “think tank” workshops
Shift the Conversation
We lift up farmer voices across the country to create a new narrative about the constructive role agriculture can play in addressing the climate crisis
