Second servings: What Tom Vilsack’s return means for the USDA

Policy: Back in November we covered the Biden Administration’s $2 trillion climate plan that calls for the conservation of 30 percent of the US lands and water by 2030, in addition to a carbon-free electric grid by 2035. Biden campaigned on a plan for rural America that recognized the important role that agriculture must play […]

Is regenerative agriculture becoming Big Food’s new cash cow?

How Big Food is Moving to Regenerative Agriculture Progress: It is no secret that our centralized food system grants a large amount of influence to a small number of packaged food corporations like Mars and Nestle. These manufacturing giants make daily decisions about where to source ingredients, which not only determine what large, medium, and […]

Growing Above and Beyond Organic

Farming: In this week’s newsletter, we are addressing the most common question we receive: What is the difference between organic and regenerative farming? Since 2000, the US Department of Agriculture’s National Organic Program (NOP) has offered growers the option to have their goods Organic Certified. In doing so, the NOP has paved the way for […]

Fungi: The original social network

Health: For more than 450 million years, mushrooms and fungi have grown beneath our feet – serving as ecological connective tissue. Mycelium – found inside of the greater fungal organism – threads its sprawling root structure through the soil, plant bodies, and along river beds to deliver sustenance to all living species. As a result, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
