a novel exploration of regenerative health and agriculture

What we do

Resilient Acres is located on 60 acres* of fields, streams, and forests in Northeast Ohio (Chardon).  It is the product of over 20 years of effort, in the face of immense challenges, and seeks to be a space where human and environmental health are promoted through a variety of initiatives.

The focus on health and healing has always been primary for founder Michael Bennett.  Steeped in the study and practice of integrative healing traditions and modalities in the late 90s and early 2000s, he discovered permaculture through his research and experimentation with diet and nutrition, which inevitably led to realization of the integral role of regenerative agriculture in promoting both human and environmental health.

Over the next several decades, including over a decade of professional experience as a Nurse Practitioner, and nearly a decade of experience in regenerative agriculture, the original multigenerational vision for creating this healing space continues to unfold.
