Fighting Climate Change with Regenerative Agriculture

We often hear that livestock are a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, yet pastured-based regenerative agriculture systems are sequestering carbon, eliminating runoff and erosion, and providing habitat for pollinators and wildlife. How does carbon sequestration work and what’s the science behind promising new research into how our soils can fight climate change? In this Alumnae Association webinar, join regenerative farmer Hannah Bernhardt '04 and food policy specialist Ariel Kagan '11 for a discussion of the principles of soil health, the fragile state of our food system, and proposed federal policies that could change the face of agriculture toward environmental regeneration, ethical eating, and food justice.
