Sustainability – Regenerative Agriculture Effect on Climate Change
November 6, 2019
Regenerative Agriculture blends modern discoveries in soil biology with indigenous wisdom. It is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services. Regenerative Agriculture aims to capture carbon in soil and above ground biomass, reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulation. At the same time, it offers increased yields, resilience to climate instability, creating soil sponges that help to reduce droughts, floods and wildfires, and higher health and vitality for farming and ranching communities. The system draws from decades of scientific and applied research by the global communities of indigenous people, organic farming, agroecology, Holistic Management, and agroforestry. Key goals for Regenerative Agriculture is to drawdown the carbon in our atmosphere and regenerate our land back to health. The group meets monthly, typically the first Wednesday of every month at lunchtime. The open meetings include prominent speakers covering a range of important issues, technologies and ideas. Past speakers have brought insights into green chemistry, marine renewable energy, data center efficiencies, corporate sustainability initiatives, local environmental conditions and more.
