WHAT WOULD NATURE DO?
Soil Regen is the conviction that the foundation of agriculture starts from the ground up with soil/plant interactions. By partnering with nature and utilizing holistic management practices we can improve farmer/rancher profitability, human health, resilience to climate, carbon storage, water quality and quantity.

Director of Communications
Currently hailing from Manhattan, Kansas, Jess Gnad’s path in soil health started with a curiosity about healthy food options in rural communities. It was while she was living in Pratt, Kansas, over the past decade and starting her family with her husband that Jess worked to form a farmer’s market, a local food coop, and a Regenerative Ag School Garden with support from Annie's Homegrown Grants for Gardens. She served as an executive board member for Kansas State University Research and Extension, and as a healthy food/farm consultant with Pratt Regional Medical Center’s Health Coalition. She counts her background as a row crop farmer and an avid gardener growing fruits and vegetables as her foundation for her passion for regenerative agriculture.
Jess is a "Jess of all trades" and can also be found coordinating Soil Health U.
