Regenerative Agriculture: State of the Art Practices
Regenerative Agriculture goes far beyond organic standards by also placing a strong emphasis on practices that boost soil health. It enhances the soil’s capacity to capture carbon and thereby helps mitigate climate change. It restores biodiversity above and below the ground, creating resilient farming systems that support ecosystems. With: Claudio Nunez, Resident Regenerative Rancher/Farmer at Paicines Ranch; Doniga Markegard of Markegard Family Grass-Fed in Pescadero, CA; Paul and Elizabeth Kaiser of Singing Frogs Farm, a remarkably productive-per-acre vegetable farm in Sebastopol, CA. Moderated by Josh Whiton, eco-tech entrepreneur, founder of MakeSoil.org.
