The Quivira Coalition builds soil, biodiversity, and resilience on western working landscapes. Their well-established "New Agrarian Program" (NAP) partners with skilled ranchers and farmers to offer annual apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. This program is a good point of entry for those wanting to become farmers and ranchers in the Southwest.
