Regenerative Agriculture

Is our culture ready for cultured meat?

Health: The dream of “raising” lab-grown, otherwise known as cultured or slaughter-free meat, through cellular agriculture has existed for decades. In 1931, Winston Churchill predicted the emergence of synthetic meat in an essay he titled “Fifty Years Hence.” But it was not until 2013 when Mark Post, a professor at Maastricht University, unveiled the first […]

Perennial crops: Attacking the roots of erosion

Progress: Modern agriculture relies on annual plants – e.g., corn, wheat, and most other grains – that complete their life cycles in a single season. Annual seeds must be replanted every year, forcing farmers to kill the weeds (chemically or mechanically) that compete with plants for sunlight, nutrients, and water, especially when the crops are […]

Our beef with grain-fed meat

Health: To comprehend why grass-fed meat is superior to grain-fed, we must think back to Michael Pollan’s famous idiom, “you are what you eat eats too.” Grass-fed cattle’s increased nutritional density and better-associated health outcomes stem from the chemical differences between forage and grain – and the complex ways in which livestock metabolize these inputs. […]

Turning the Tide: The Potential for Regenerative Ocean Farming

Farming: Regenerative agroforestry practices have historically been applied to land-based food systems. But In recent years, an increasing number of eco-conscious entrepreneurs and organizations are turning their attention towards coastal ecosystems, which absorb up to 20 times more CO2 per acre than forests. By mimicking the diversity of natural reefs, ocean-farming operations produce nutrient-dense foods […]

The Future of Fashion

Fashion: Amongst industries that have negative impacts on the environment, the $3 trillion-dollar global clothing industry is seldom mentioned. Yet the apparel sector – whose profits are built on exploitative agricultural and labor practices – has been deemed to be the second most polluting industry in the world, second only to oil. The textile sector […]

Turning a New Sheaf

History: In 2009, President Barack Obama designated the Friday after Thanksgiving as “Native American Heritage Day.” The civil holiday is part of a broader effort to recognize and celebrate Native Americans’ cultural heritage and intrinsic importance to our nation’s past, present, and future. While industrial agriculture commandeers the US food system and perpetuates injustices based […]

Is Carbon the Next Cash Crop?

Progress: In last week’s newsletter, we touched upon Biden’s pledge to invest $2 trillion in clean energy and green infrastructure over the next four years, charting the US on course for a carbon-free electric grid by 2035. The new administration has taken a clear stance that reducing US carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions is inextricably linked […]

A New Political Climate: Biden’s Bold Stance on Agriculture

Policy: Less than a week after the US officially withdrew from the Paris Agreement on climate change, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden defeated incumbent President Donald Trump in a contentious election. In contrast to the Trump administration, which downplayed global warming while reversing more than 100 environmental regulations, Biden has proposed a $2 trillion climate […]

The Hidden Cost Of Agrochemicals

Health: In June of 2020, Bayer, the agrochemical company that owns Monsanto, agreed to pay $10 billion to settle tens of thousands of lawsuits to those who rightfully claimed that its herbicide, Roundup, was the cause of their cancer diagnosis. At the same time, the company shelled out $400 million to farmers whose crops and […]

The proof is in the soil

Health: COVID-19 has brought health conditions front and center. As scientists rush to develop vaccines, doctors are left to find alternative ways of keeping patients safe. In the eyes of Rupa Marya, MD, “there is a profound connection between soil health and human health – and it’s all in the gut.” After marrying a regenerative […]
