Homegrown Stories: Changing the way we think about agriculture

February 1, 2018

Steve Charter is one of many Montanans re-shaping the way we think about agriculture. The third-generation rancher explains how soil regeneration is a simple solution to a complex issue in Homegrown Stories.

A project of the Western Organization of Resource Councils (WORC), Homegrown Stories tells the narrative of “farm and ranch families cultivating good food, healthy land, and rural vitality.”  Through photos, video, and transcribed interviews, participants show what they’re doing to rebuild local food systems and sustain family farms in their own communities.

Check out Steve’s and others’ stories at!
