On November 19-22, 2019, HMI co-hosted the 2019 REGENERATE Conference with the Quivira Coalition and the American Grassfed Association (AGA) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Over 500 people attended the conference. This year’s theme was “Health from the Soil Up.” Presenters included Fred Provenza, Nicole Masters, Grant and Dawn Breitkreutz, Michael Graziano, Glenn Elzinga, Cory Carman, Roland Kroos, Cooper Hibbard, Carter Randolph, Peggy Sechrist, Graeme Hand, Blain Hjertaas, Kelly Sidoryk, and Joel Benson, among many other wonderful speakers.
The HMI/AGA social, sponsored by Greenacres Foundation and Tomkat Ranch Educational Foundation, was attended by over 200 participants. Almost all the pre- and post-conference workshops were sold out as people learned about Beef Butchery, Farmland Transition, Keyline Design, Supply Chain Primer, Energy on the Ranch, Veterinary Homeopathy, Soil Health and Quality Food Production, and Profitable Regenerative Grazing.
Likewise, presentations and roundtables were well attended on such topics as: Creative Investment in Regenerative Agriculture, Collaborating Effectively with Underserved Communities in Regenerative Agriculture, How Citizen Science and Professional Science Can Inform Each Other, Food is Medicine, Fast Track to a Regenerative Life with Holistic Management, Mental Health in Agriculture, Nurturing Health from the Ground Up, The Importance of Relatinoship in a Successful Regenerative Agriculture Business, and Soil Health Network Listening Sessions.
