INTERTRIBAL AGRICULTURE COUNCIL
Are you interested in learning how Conservation Planning can improve your agricultural operation’s bottom line? Have you wondered what land stewardship practices would take your production to the next level?
The Intertribal Agriculture Council is working with the NRCS in an effort to further enhance the stewardship of Native American lands by providing improved access to conservation planning technical assistance, management resources, and useful land stewardship tools.
This presents Native producers with a unique opportunity to build upon their land stewardship knowledge base as they continue to improve the sustainability, health and profitability of their operation’s resources. As always, our programs are made available at no cost to Tribal producers. Contact us for a training session so we can design your Conservation Planning Tool Kit to be uniquely fit to your operation.
Regenerative agriculture is a holistic approach to revitalizing land and ecological systems. It focuses on improving soil’s ability to regenerate over time by involving the whole farm ecosystem, including humans and wildlife.
It is a mindset that, in many cases, is already inherent in tribal producers. However, various circumstances and barriers hinder the full success of putting these systems into practice. This is why IAC started promoting a full circle regenerative economy where Native producers and businesses are given access to the tools and knowledge they need, provided a financing structure that supports their efforts and endeavors, and market opportunities that can generate long-term profits.
