Don Viecelli

Speakers Bureau / Don Viecelli


Don Viecelli was raised on a 160-acre family dairy farm in Central Michigan and is concerned about industrial farming methods that have degraded our topsoil, and polluted our waterways and oceans with chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, lowered food nutrient values and harmed our environment. He believes Regenerative Agriculture (RA) practices and solutions can help save our planet faster and more cost-effectively than other technological means by drawing down excess carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gas emissions into healthy, living soil. He chairs the Regenerative Agriculture c committee for our chapter and  is co-chair of Climate Reality Project’s nationwide RA Coalition advocating for the 2024 Farm Bill. Don attended Michigan State University and earned his MBA at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. He retired as a senior marketing professional in the high-tech industry.
