Regenerative Agriculture claims to offer the solutions to our agricultural and landcare problems, such as soil erosion and depletion, weed and pest abundance and pesticide tolerance, nutrient supply and availability, proper ecological roles for farm animals and so on. Through these regenerative methods Regenerative Ag also offers solutions to our wider, global crises such as climate change and ocean acidification through carbon sequestration into soils, less reliance on chemicals and mined minerals, and less fossil fuel consumption.
Are these promises real?
At NOFA-RI’s Winter Conference this season you will explore these issues with several leaders in the arena of regenerative and sustainable agriculture over the course of two panel discussions moderated by Rhode Island farmer John Kenny and include Ray Archuleta, Leah Penniman, Dr. Vern Grubinger, and Dr. Jonathan Lundgren.
Whether you’re a farmer, gardener, home grower, or eater, there’s something at the conference for you!
