Partners & Funders

Your Partner in Soil Health

By its very definition, the Soil Health Partnership is exactly that – a partnership. We were born out of an initial partnership between NCGA, The Nature Conservancy, Bayer and the Environmental Defense Fund. Over time, we have expanded, bringing diverse partners together to improve the economic and environmental sustainability of the farm. We work with organizations and individuals across many sectors – public, private, nonprofit, trade associations, universities…the list goes on.

Power in Partnerships

While each partner organization maintains its own individual strategies and approaches for achieving improved sustainability performance, partnerships promote collaboration and innovation while reducing duplicate efforts.

Our guidance comes from our partner members and funders.
