Tour attendees will enjoy learning more about regenerative food systems by visiting operations and learning directly from operators. This unique experience provides ample time to learn, to connect with other tour attendees, and to enjoy a delicious locally made, farm fresh lunch on the farm.

Air conditioned bus transportation is provided, as is lunch. Tour will start and end at the conference hotel in downtown Denver. More details coming soon!

FARMER SCHOLARSHIP SPONSOR

The Nest

The Nest is a Belgian family office investing in more resilient food systems. We envision them operating within the planetary boundaries of the Earth. We imagine a mostly circular system, based on respect for all living beings and the farmers and agricultural workers at its core. We see a world in which the true price of food is understood and accounts for the costs borne by society and the planet. In this system indigenous wisdom and technology are intertwined to produce food regeneratively that can serve as medicine and provide enough nourishment for all. And while the dominant system is difficult to overturn, we strongly believe that by creating choices where once there were none, nature based solutions will in the end prevail.
