Thank you for supporting farmers who do the important work of Healing People, Healing Our Communities, and Healing Our Earth.

About Us

Healing Soils Foundation (HSF) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organization initiated by Iroquois Valley Farm REIT. It is our mission to strengthen collaboration and networks for organic agriculture and provide charitable grants directly to farmers in the United States who work to regenerate and restore soil health.

We launched in 2022 with the intention to help restore life in the soil depleted by decades of exploitative conventional farming practices. We believe that soil restoration is a community responsibility and therefore requires leveraging community support for farmers committed to the healing of the land.

Support Indigenous Farmers in the Midwest

HSF has the opportunity to match $100,000 in grant funding from The 11th Hour Project, a program of The Schmidt Family Foundation. This funding will support indigenous farmers in the Midwest who are working to establish a humane poultry production system based on organic and regenerative methods. These efforts are led by Reginaldo Hasslet-Marroquin, CEO and Co-founder of Tree-Range Farms and supported by the non-profit group Regenerative Agriculture Alliance who will administer the grants under the leadership of Executive Director, Diane Christofore. 

Help us reach our $100,000 goal!

Assist Socially Disadvantaged Farmers with Land Access 

HSF is matching funding to support an IQVF program designed to assist Socially Disadvantaged Farmers with reduced mortgage interest rates. These farmers meet the USDA’s definition of socially disadvantaged. IQVF provides funding through a partnership with investors in the Rooted In Regeneration Notes. By matching this funding, qualified Socially Disadvantaged Farmers can receive a total of 4% interest reduction, potentially saving them over $20,000 annually on a $500,000 mortgage. IQVF already has qualified farmers ready to benefit from this program, and can help more farmers with your support.

Help us reach our $100,000 goal!
