Our mission is to educate and inspire farmers, ranchers, and consumers about the importance of sustainability, regenerative farming, and biodiversity in our food systems.

Growing perennial wheat on highway shoulders throughout North America has the potential to provide a range of benefits, including:

Soil Stabilization: Planting perennial wheat on highway shoulders can help prevent erosion and stabilize the soil, which can reduce the risk of landslides and other natural disasters.

Carbon Sequestration: Perennial wheat has deep roots that can help sequester carbon in the soil, which can contribute to climate change mitigation efforts.

Habitat Restoration: Planting perennial wheat can help restore habitat for wildlife, particularly pollinators and birds that rely on grasslands for food and shelter.

Reduced Maintenance Costs: By planting a perennial crop on highway shoulders, maintenance costs for mowing and weed control can be reduced, as the plants will naturally compete with and suppress weed growth.

Local Food Production: Perennial wheat can be harvested for use in a range of food products, including bread and cereal, providing an additional source of locally-produced food.

While there are certainly some benefits to planting perennial wheat on highway shoulders, it is important to consider potential challenges and limitations, including the need for ongoing maintenance, potential impacts on wildlife habitat, and the need for careful species selection and management to ensure that the plants do not become invasive. Nonetheless, exploring the potential for perennial wheat as a multi-functional and sustainable land use strategy on highway shoulders is a promising area for future research and innovation.
