Consumers are more and more aware of the harm industrial agriculture does to our health and planet. Michael Pollan told us to vote with our forks to create change, and we did. The past decade has seen impressive growth in the demand for organic and whole foods. But, organic agriculture has its limitations. While better than conventional agriculture, organic farming applied on an industrial scale continues to damage our soils and the environment. Could regenerative agriculture be a viable alternative? Our panel brings together a farming entrepreneur, an expert on food systems, and two social impact investors to talk about regenerative agriculture: its potential to reverse climate change, and its role in the lives of citizens and consumers.
