Testimonials


Slide Lindsay Rebhan and Paula Westmoreland Sharing Our Roots farm is healing land and building community. It has been gratifying to work with the staff and the land to demonstrate solutions needed for a regenerative future. The transformation from a corn and soybean monocrop to a diverse, productive farmscape has been amazing. The farm is a place for real-time innovation and learning. We appreciate the farm team's holistic approach and understanding that successful transitions work for the land, people and the bottom line. " " Ecological Design Slide Peg Bouska I appreciated gleaning the knowledge that Sharing Our Roots has, especially what the staff has learned from farm challenges they weren't expecting. The farm is such a beautiful space! " " Climate Land Leaders™ Slide Senior Director, HCI Growing Up Healthy Growing Up Healthy is proud to partner with Sharing Our Roots to create opportunities for Latinx and immigrant kids and families to connect socially through agriculture. Through our collaborative partnership, we are transforming the community - cultivating neighborhood leadership, fostering social connectedness, and collectively advocating for systems-level change. Sharing Our Roots is a critical part of what makes this a place where kids can truly grow up healthy. " " Sandy Malecha Slide Al Singer When Dakota County and the Main Street Project began envisioning the Sharing Our Roots project, the goal was to create a rural enterprise model that combined profitable, regenerative agriculture and protecting and improving natural resources with opportunities for landowners, agricultural producers, agency staff, the financial industry, and others to learn about how these systems could be better integrated to achieve greater benefits. This project required creativity, patience, persistence and flexibility among all of the partners. A very special place has now been permanently protected and available for people to experience the transformation that is taking place. " " Land Conservation Manager, Dakota County Slide Board Member & Graduate of Sharing Our Roots’ Poultry Training The poultry training we participated in through Sharing Our Roots was very practical. My husband and I felt supported as we navigated the possibilities of growing chickens on our own. We definitely got smarter because we took this class together! We are also more inspired!
