Building a Stronger Vision and Voice for Illinois Regenerative Grazing

The Wallace Center’s Pasture Project is working with diverse partner organizations, networks, and farmer leaders in Illinois—one of the nation’s largest commodity crop producers and a significant source of agriculture pollution—to develop a shared strategy for expanding regenerative grazing throughout the state. The project’s approach is rooted in the active engagement of farmer-to-farmer networks to build capacity, credibility and momentum for shifting Illinois agriculture. The project has three key activities: (1) strategic network development and capacity building; (2) critical resource and tool development; and (3) farmer-to-farmer network outreach and leadership development.
