Event description



Please join us as we bring local and national leaders together to discuss the future of Nebraska food production.

RegeNErate Nebraska is a growing community of local farmers, community groups, urban consumers, tribal members, and everyday citizens working together for more local control over how their food is produced and distributed.

The purpose of regenerative agriculture is to continually improve and regenerate the health of the soil by restoring its carbon content, which in turn improves plant health, nutrition, and productivity.

The event will include conversations on regenerative poultry and bison, sacred seeds, the development of food forests of native fruit and nut trees, and include a local, regenerative bison based supper at the end of the event. Ernest Weston, Jr of Thunder Valley will be a part of the agenda, sharing an update on Thunder Valley’s regenerative poultry project in Pine Ridge.

A free supper, prepared with regenerative, locally produced food will be served.

The conversation will have an emphasis on native food sovereignty and how to create opportunities amongst tribes and on native land. This is a setting that will allow for public interaction with the speakers leading the conversation. The overarching goal is to take the information and connections made at this event back home to respective native communities, to help facilitate the development of local food pipelines and food sovereign communities.
