"Jeremy Gregory is the founder and director of Tindakan (formerly known as Bands for Lands) and CEO of Tindakan Innovations, a Public Benefit Corporation that among other things, cultivates hemp using sustainable, biodynamic and regenerative practices and principles. A percentage of net funds are directed to the charitable arm. He comes from a long line of teachers, eco-conscious farmers, artists and altruists. The principles of continued growth, conscious benevolence, and equitable education are tenets that he continues to value highly. It is his genuine hope to help encourage the merits of taking responsibility for our own growth and actions and for the betterment of our world. Jeremy served in the Peace Corps teaching Community Based Natural Resource Management, conservation and sustainability issues, sustainable agriculture, and perma-culture as well as professional-building skills in the communities he served in Malawi Africa. Over the past 20 years in the nonprofit sector, Jeremy has gained invaluable knowledge and experience in NGO development, operations, project management, event production and coordination, and social entrepreneurial enterprise.
Adam is a PhD candidate in environmental anthropology (cultural field studies) and co-founder of the environmental movement organization, Dyspatch, which is based in Boulder, Colorado. Dyspatch specializes in providing direct support to frontline campaigns for land defense across North America; land defense is the practice of intervening directly in environmentally destructive practices. Before founding Dyspatch, Adam worked for five years as Project Manager with several major environmental NGOs in Washington DC, such as the Worldwatch Institute and Conservation International. Adam’s role with Tindakan Innovations is to manage benefit sharing and mutual aid to our various nonprofit arms and environmental partners to ensure social and ecological benefits of hemp cultivation, to build healthy communities – human and natures, and to create regenerative practices on the land that we cultivate."
