Planting the Seeds for Regenerative Agriculture Coverdale Farm Preserve Mission & Vision as defined through the Coverdale Master Plan Believing that healthy food, healthy communities, and a healthy environment are among the rights of all people, Coverdale Farm Preserve manages its 356-acre Farm and Preserve as an ecosystem, an interconnected and integrated network of forest, streams, fields, ponds, food, and farm that nourish the landscape and all its inhabitants – from soil to stomach while preserving & protecting critical natural areas. Coverdale experiments to adapt and refine regenerative agricultural methods to fit this unique landscape by mimicking natural processes and demonstrating that systems-based, productive, and economically viable farming is an act of conservation and preservation. 4 NATURE EXPLORER Sep – Dec 2017
