Participate in the Organic & Regenerative Transition Community of Practice

Through its intentional design and facilitation this Community of Practice will foster innovation and collaboration, supporting businesses in re-thinking the evolution of their supply chains to enable and accelerate the transition to organic and regenerative agriculture. 

We want to express our deep gratitude to the UNFI Foundation, Eat the Change, and Good Earth Natural Foods for their support in helping make the first cohort of the Community of Practice a reality!

As a member of the Community of Practice you will experience:

  • An engaging and inspiring, year-long program tailored specifically for CPGs who aspire to accelerate their organic and regenerative transition
  • Eight monthly 2-hour virtual sessions. These sessions will be curated and facilitated for relationship building, shared learning, insightful break-throughs and meaningful action by the Climate Collaborative team. As the year progresses, these sessions may include other stakeholders in the supply chain and industry experts based on the CoP’s needs
  • Two 6-hour in-person facilitated work sessions at Expo West and location to be determined
  • Opportunities for Peer Coaching to support each other in deepening the learning experiences, and activating each of our potential to affect change
  • Support throughout the year, with assistance for projects that emerge from the CoP
  • Opportunities to accelerate the work of this community with aligned farmer and supplier work led by Mad Agriculture focused on many of the same crops
  • And much more as it emerges through our collective journey together!

We will work from a place of: 

  • Collaborative Intentions. This CoP is informed by a belief that through collaboration we can get further faster. In that spirit, we are interested in participants who are eager to learn and work (where desired) across company lines.
  • Aligned Interests. There are two primary areas where participants will have aligned interests. First, they will have a clear interest in organic and regenerative transition for the crops they are working on. Second, they will have a deep orientation towards building a more robust supply chain for organic and regenerative crops.
  • Creative Solutions: One of the exciting aspects of this work is the opportunity to think creatively about how we solve for some of the challenges CPGs are facing. We recognize that solutions may not currently exist, but we are energized about the opportunity to work collaboratively to unlock challenges affecting individual businesses. 
  • Implementation and Action: We recognize that participants may be at different stages in their organic and regenerative journey. However, successful participants will have the leadership support to implement solutions and take action to transition acres to organic and regenerative.


  • A community of peers working in aligned areas to help accelerate your work
  • A framework for identifying and setting acre transition targets that make sense for your business
  • Solutions and roadmaps to the challenges you are facing in your organic and regenerative transition
  • An increased capacity to facilitate transitions in your supply chain
  • A deeper knowledge of the ecosystem of support available to support your work, including: organizations, processors, tools and resources
