Cultivating Food Sovereignty Through Regenerative Ocean Farming

The Native Conservacy, a Native-owned and Native-led land trust, created a program to support and train Indigenous farmers to create their own kelp farms. Kelp is nutrient-rich, grows in the ocean, and requires no land or fertilizer. The Native Conservancy has seven sites, grew 4,000 pounds of kelp, and helped Indigenous farmers secure low-interest loans so they can start their own operations.
