Conventional farming is a huge driver of climate change and biodiversity loss. The good news is that regenerative agriculture could be the answer to turning it all around! However\, scaling regenerative agriculture should not fall on farmers alone – it should be a joint effort across the supply chain. Food companies and retailers should reward farmers who embrace these practices as well as governments\, and intergovernmental organizations must reshape policies or plans and even incentivise regenerative agriculture. Consumers should be educated about this problem and encouraged to make conscious food choices\, which will grow demand for sustainably produced products. Join us for this webinar and get to know more about the possibilities for your food startup to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable food system.

DESCRIPTION:It seems logical that healthier soil could grow healthier food. But how do we measure this and demonstrate it scientifically? Exploring links between the nutrient density of food and the soil it was grown in remains a young field of study—we often have more questions than answers. \nThe Bionutrient Institute is a collaborative project that seeks to shed light on this topic. In 2018 they began analyzing crops and soil samples from a wide range of farms across the country to help us understand connections between soil health and food nutrition. Pasa partnered with Bionutrient Institute in 2020 to measure the nutrient content of crops grown by farmers participating in our Soil Health Benchmark Study. These analyses can help us understand whether different approaches to field management can produce healthier food. \nHelping farmers explore links between soil health and nutrition could additionally offer a valuable marketing tool and a new opportunity to educate customers about the benefits of sustainable practices. Join us to learn more about this national project and what it’s uncovered so far.

Now we increasingly know that humus actually may not exist in soil\, and soil microbes not just are responsible for decomposition\, but also contribute directly to soil organic matter formation. This brand new mechanistic understanding has been described as the soil “microbial carbon pump (MCP).” \nDoes this theory explain why regenerative agriculture builds soil carbon? How can we utilize this conceptual advancement to guide actual practices to improve soil carbon storage? In this webinar\, Dr. Yichao Rui will introduce this paradigm shift and discuss how we can harness the power of regenerative agriculture and revitalize the soil “MCP” to effectively regenerate soil carbon.

Join the OGA for this evening webinar reaffirming the importance of soil.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThis session will explore the reasons why soil is so important to organic production systems\, what the threats are to soil-based production\, and how we as growers can maximise the vitality of our soils for healthy crops\, people and planet. \nSpeakers \nDave Chapman runs Long Wind Farm in Vermont\, USA and is the Executive Director of the Real Organic Project. He is a founding member of the Vermont Organic Farmers. He has been active in the movement to Keep The Soil In Organic. He is proud to be a current member of the Policy Committee of the Organic Farmers Association. He served on the USDA Hydroponic Task Force. \nDave has thought deeply about the importance of soil. Organic standards in the US have evolved to be very different to those here in Europe\, in several key ways\, not least through soil-less growing\, such as hydroponics\, now being eligible for official organic certification. A cautionary tale – Dave will join us to explain what’s happened and how organic farmers have come together to re-tell the story of organic in the US. \nJonathan Smith of Scilly Organics grows organic fruit\, vegetables\, herbs and flowers on the island of St Martins\, Isles of Scilly. He uses seaweed\, compost and green manures for soil health. Jonathan will tell us about how he nurtures the sandy soils he works on and the soil analysis he uses. He is a Director of Farm Carbon Toolkit and wrote and co-developed the Farm Carbon Calculator supporting growers to assess carbon emissions and sequestration on the land they steward.

A deep dive into what Regenerative Ag is and how best we can reshape the future of farming\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAbout Dr Ken Giller: \nKen Giller is Professor of Plant Production Systems at Wageningen University. His research focuses on smallholder farming systems in sub-Saharan Africa\, and in particular problems of soil fertility with emphasis on the temporal and spatial dynamics of resources within crop/livestock farming systems. He leads a number of initiatives such as N2Africa – Putting Nitrogen Fixation to Work for Smallholder Farmers in Africa. He is co-chair of the Thematic Network 7 on Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) of the United Nations and a member of the Unilever Sustainable Sourcing Advisory Board. Ken joined Wageningen University in 2001 after holding professorships at Wye College\, University of London\, and the University of Zimbabwe. \nABSTRACT – The Framing of Farming: Regenerative Agriculture \nAgriculture is in crisis. Soil health is collapsing. Biodiversity faces the sixth mass extinction. Crop yields are plateauing. Against this crisis narrative swells a clarion call for Regenerative Agriculture. Regenerative Agriculture is being promoted strongly by civil society and NGOs as well as by many of the major multi-national food companies. But what is Regenerative Agriculture\, and why is it gaining such prominence? Which problems does it solve\, and how? In this seminar Ken will address these issues and open a discussion as to whether Regenerative Agriculture represents a re-framing of what have been considered to be two contrasting approaches to agricultural futures\, namely agroecology and sustainable intensification\, under the same banner. Join us to discuss whether this is more likely to confuse than to clarify the public debate and how best we can contribute to reshaping our food systems in future. \n  URL:https://regenerationinternational.org/event/webinar-regenerative-agriculture-with-dr-ken-giller/ CATEGORIES:Event ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/png:https://regenerationinternational.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/calendar-2.png END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
