Need: Raise $30,000 to start our project to accelerate progress in Arizona through education, modeling, leadership development, and supply chain networking. As the state departs from the Colorado River compact and persistent drought prohibits conventional growing systems, we will bring ranchers to the first regenerative organic certified ranch in Arizona to share best practices, learn from each other, and develop a strong understanding of how to grow healthy food in drought conditions.
Mission: The DRY Cooperative will collaborate with Think Regeneration, a national nonprofit, and create a three-year accelerator program for Arizona's leading regenerative agriculture farmers, ranchers, and food supply entrepreneurs. The experience at Oatman Flats Ranch in Arizona will create a powerful ripple effect, including these annual outcomes for at least 15 participants each year:
The experience will include:
Who: We want to work with companies, organizations, and individuals who are passionate about improving the food supply.
What is Regenerate AZ? In its second year, this event is committed to helping connect farmers and ranchers to educational and networking opportunities.
The need is clear: Arizona's economic position as a national agriculture leader is at risk due to future predicted water shortages. Arizona's agriculture economy uses 74% of its water to produce 12% of the nation's fruits and vegetables. Yet, Arizona only owns junior rights to the Colorado River, meaning the state will have less water to use as soon as water restrictions begin. At Oatman Flats, the wheat and pastures are managed to maximize water storage, while also building balanced soil that feeds and protects their crops.
Contact us today! To be ready, we need to invest in Arizona's top growers and land managers who think differently, are wildly ambitious, and passionate about protecting the state's important role in the food supply.
Oatman Flats Ranch (pictured) is founded by Dax Hansen, a fourth generation producer on a mission to revitalize the desert landscape. It is the first regenerative organic certified farm in the U.S. Southwest that grows heritage wheat. The farm uses regenerative practices to maximize soil-based water storage, including but not limited to minimize soil disturbance, cover cropping, roller crimping and mob grazing for cover crop termination, integrated pest management, etc. to nourish the soil that further improve health of people and the ecosystem.
