All Life

In Superior — In Arizona — In the Sonora Bioregion

Regenerating Sonora was founded to help all life flourish in the Sonora Bioregion. We’re devoted to the regeneration of human communities and natural environments.
Our initial focus is the rural copper mining town of Superior, Arizona.

Our Initial Projects

Growing Food & Knowledge

With a team of experts and enthusiastic volunteers, we’re creating the Erickson Micro-Farm in the town of Superior, named after one of our first local supporters. We’ll be using “regenerative practices” to provide food, togetherness and practical education for the people of Superior. We are seeking funds to secure the land, purchase materials, and set up the farm for the local community to enjoy.

Feeding the Kids

Feeding the Kids

Throughout the COVID pandemic, Regenerating Sonora has been feeding children in Superior who have slipped through the cracks in other programs to combat local hunger.

With the help of enthusiastic volunteers, we’ve provided thousands of nutritious weekend meals from our own base, Leo’s Community Center. We count on the help of generous donors to continue and expand this essential service.

Making Sense Through Stories

We’re launching a program called SenseMaker®, a remarkable way to gather stories and insights from the citizens of Superior. Through SenseMaker, we’ll create a wellspring of firsthand experience, available to everyone. This resource will help the community know itself better and guide its future development. We’re seeking funds for the software and training to implement the SenseMaker program.

Help Us Get These Projects Launched

We need to raise $15,000 to launch our initial projects. Your tax-deductible donation

laying foundations for a future of positive change in Superior and beyond.
