At present, the Gulch’s highlighted project is Rainmaker Farm—a 160-acre parcel that is a working landscape located in Noble County, just under 1 hour north of Stillwater, Oklahoma. We have officially transitioned the farm from conventional wheat (tilled and non-organic) to no-till regenerative farming. Our Year 1 planting plan is in the ground, including annual crops, soil building cover crops, deep-rooted cover crops, pollinator habitat, and the orchard. Soil baseline monitoring has been conducted by the University, allowing The Gulch to document the change in carbon soil levels our actions result in. We have also begun livestock incorporation with the addition of 4 beehives and the incorporation of ecological-based pest management through the installation of Barn Owl boxes.
Donating Done Differently
After donating to charitable causes, there is often frustration about not knowing where your money went and what good it actually did. 10/6 CEO Angel Lance decided to do things a little differently; the Gulch Environmental Foundation communicates openly how money is distributed as well as its impact through project reporting available to the general public and specific reporting available to its donors.
Oh Wait, There’s More!
The Gulch Environmental Foundation continuously encourages employees to volunteer to learn about green options for everyday living and discusses various green options in practice, products, trends, investments, etc.—all things related to sustainable living and business development. Additionally, the Foundation dedicates effort toward modern and innovative scientific theories to develop, validate, and employ solutions for scalable sustainability.
