Regenerative Agriculture Pilot Project
In Autumn of 2023 Friends is embarking on a five-year pilot project to understand how regenerative agriculture can be adopted as a feasible, sustainable, and achievable process for restoring soil fertility and productivity on the refuge. During this pilot, our contractors, Friends, and refuge staff will implement BEAM protocol on four historically-farmed plots totaling thirty-eight acres in the southern portion of the refuge. BEAM stands for Biologically Enhanced Agricultural Management.
Donate to support this important pilot project, which may benefit our local community farms as well.
