Earth Month 2022 Partnership
Looking Out for the Land
Common agricultural practices—such as use of excessive pesticides and fertilizers—can degrade both the farmland itself and surrounding ecosystems. In fact, nearly 33% of the world’s farmable land has been lost in the last 40 years alone. It’s time to give the land a break and create a more flourishing ecosystem for all.
At Bowery Farming, we’re reimagining where and how we can grow food more sustainably. Located in industrial areas right outside of cities, our warehouses feature unexpected vertical farms that use significantly less water and land.
Restoring the Outdoors
Indoor farming can bring food closer to communities without the need to impact precious forests and other natural ecosystems. This Earth Month, we’re supporting The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees program, which focuses on rewilding and restoration efforts of retired farmland and degraded forests.
All month long, Bowery Farming’s packs will feature different species that benefit from rewilding efforts. Join us in supporting The Nature Conservancy today.
About Our Donation
Bowery Farming is restoring 50 acres across two Nature Conservancy initiatives. Learn more about these areas below.
The U.S. Mississpi Alluvial Valley
Once heavily forested, the lower Mississippi River Valley, also known as “the Delta,” has largely been converted to agriculture over the past two centuries, but restoration efforts are building back these iconic bottomland forests.
Longleaf Pine Forests
Longleaf pine forests, one of the world’s most biologically diverse ecosystems, once encompassed more than 90 million acres across the Southeast, stretching from eastern Texas to southern Virginia. Today, less than 5% of the historic range remains intact.
