Montana, a Gallery

Updated: Jul 17, 2019

We learned so much when we were in Montana; from ranchers such as Steve Charter who taught us about soil health, native grasses, and vermicast; to farmers nurturing the diversity of animals and plants on their land for their local food system; to those growing veggies in vertical indoor gardens... so much going on in the #BigSkyCountry. Huge thanks to the Western Organization of Resource Councils, Northern Plains Resource Council team and members for helping us reach and surpass our hopes while visiting Montana.

Niaz and Montana farmer Dena Hoff (black shirt) led a lively discussion on how the combined voices of food producers, both land and water, can steer policy to be more fair and equitable, while also making food healthier and more sustainable.
