"Soil Centric has helped me reimagine and redefine my sense of possibility for a career focused on climate-solutions. When I decided to transition from teaching to a career focused on climate, I had no idea where to begin, despite having a robust network in the climate community. When I found Soil Centric, my world opened up. I had no idea that a community of optimistic people focused on climate solutions was out there, and to have the educational and career opportunities all sourced in one place is incredible! Through Soil Centric, I have discovered a community of cross-generational, cross-disciplinary people applying regenerative principles in everything from agriculture to landscape architecture to finance. I'm trying out a bunch of opportunities, learning new skills and am already living more regeneratively."
"I'd read Paul Hawken's Drawdown but was struggling to figure out where I could apply my skills. Soil Centric connected me to one of Soil Health Academy's hands-on training sessions and I ended up going with my brother. I also started volunteering with Soil Centric and becoming part of this supportive community steeped me in the principles and framing I needed to get my entire family onboard with regeneration. Now we're actively applying regenerative principles to our land in South Dakota; The soil is alive, the carbon in cycling, and the biodiversity is returning.”
"I was delighted to discover Soil Centric, as it is exactly what I had been looking for - a powerful tool for exploring the intricate and interconnected world of regenerative agriculture, and most importantly, where to go to learn more. The app is searchable, targeted and extremely useful - it helps me find relevant and high quality resources much more easily than traditional websites, books or search engines.”
“I have an arts background and was at an early stage in my regenerative journey when I learned about Soil Centric at a symposium in early 2020. By following their social media, I learned about an opportunity to apply for Groundwork: Regeneration through Agriculture, an intensive online course. I was accepted and learned an incredible amount about my passion, healthy soil. A few months later I was listening to Soil Centric's podcast and was so inspired by one of their guests, a worm composter and entrepreneur in Oakland, that I reached out to her directly. Kourtnii Brown introduced me to a new position coordinating a community composting grant program, and I have since been hired for that role. Thanks to that inspiring podcast, I am now embedded in California's growing composting community! I love that Soil Centric's pathfinder tool is accessible and helpful for people with all backgrounds and goals and will continue to use it on my path.”
“Soil Centric’s Pathfinder Tool built the foundation of our grassroots sales campaign at UpTerra. Every farm and overarching organization that I fell in love with came from Soil Centric’s website. The tool is super easy to follow and utilize and includes succinct blurbs about the farms that helped to simplify the process. I appreciate the work that Soil Centric does to promote regenerative farms!”
“Soil Centric’s Pathfinder helped me on my journey from garden educator to farm apprentice. I did a lot of research and this tool was the easiest to use.”
"Listening to Alex’s story on Soil Centric’s podcast, I found comfort and solace. I felt that I could really relate to her journey."
“As a young professional in the corporate food space who is eager to get involved in the regenerative agriculture movement, I have found the Pathfinder tool extremely useful. My work experience has provided me skills in finance and analysis, and the tool has been a great map to find opportunities that would round out these skills and allow me to leverage them for a regenerative career. I look forward to continuing to use the Pathfinder as my regenerative journey progresses, and hopefully one day to provide opportunities for young people joining the movement.”
“@Soil_Centric i binged your podcast while i prepped for spring planting on our farm 😁. An intimate look at women from so many different sectors of regen farming! As a grain farmer, it was so interesting to hear about other journey into regen farm/ranching #unconventionalpaths”
“I'm a first generation farmer in Upstate New York. Soil Centric’s Pathfinder is the tool I’ve been looking for to find the regen resources I need.”
