A Quivira Land Health Workshop

The Quivira Coalition is pleased to announce the launch of a project that will invite land owners/managers with a specific land health "need" to submit a short proposal to apply for a Quivira Land Health Workshop on their property in 2016.

This project is made possible by a grant from the Paul H. Johanson Fund. We are grateful for the opportunity provided by the Johanson Fund to reach out to land managers who are relatively new to the Quivira Community and excited about the possibility of hosting a land heath workshop.

Why?
Quivira wishes to work with a land manager to complement their existing goals for improved health of their land. The workshop host will select the workshop format. For example, a two-day event might include a morning of instruction followed by a day and a half of volunteer work.

Goals
  • Conduct a workshop on a property where Quivira has not worked in the past
  • Engage new audiences
  • Increase the local knowledge about innovative management techniques
  • Host an outdoor forum that will bring neighbors together
  • Improve the health of habitat for plants, animals and soil
  • Have fun and make new friends

New Agrarian

Calling on Ranchers in NM, CO and AZ!

TTMentorship

Apply to be a mentor.

NAP is growing! We are seeking applications from a handful of established ranchers and farmers interested in mentoring the next generation.

The New Agrarian Program (NAP) partners with skilled ranchers and farmers to offer apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. Together, we create opportunities for comprehensive, full-immersion experiential learning from expert practitioners in authentic professional settings.

This program was designed to support the next generation of food producers and specifically targets first-career professionals with a sincere commitment to life at the intersection of conservation and regenerative agriculture.

NAP partners with full-time, established ranchers or farmers with a minimum of five years' experience. NAP mentors are dedicated land stewards. They practice intentional, regenerative methods that prioritize healthy soil, healthy food, and healthy communities. They maintain a culture, seasonal rhythms, and agricultural practices that provide a high quality of life for people and animals, while actively and intentionally regenerating soil, vegetation, and riparian areas, and protecting water quality.

In exchange for their labor, apprentices receive mentorship and professional instruction in all aspects of a resilient and regenerative agricultural operation.

Please send questions and inquiries to Virginie Pointeau, New Agrarian Program Director: VIrginie Pointeau. 505.820.2544, Ext. 5.
