Regeneration Vermont’s founding team has extensive experience in the theory and practice of agriculture, forestry and ecology, living on the cutting-edge of regenerative change for decades. More than running successful organic farms, maple sugaring operations and practicing restorative forestry, we have also built and led grassroots movements, published books, magazines and articles, and designed and implemented educational and activist campaigns that have changed both the culture and agriculture. We live and speak regeneration, bringing both a reverence and understanding for what’s necessary and possible for our planet’s survival.
The regeneration movement is focused on slowing down and ultimately ending greenhouse gas emissions from all GHG generating practices, but especially targeting both agriculture and urban gardening. Its parallel and equally important focus are on promoting strategies designed to bring the excess carbon in the atmosphere back to earth and sequestering those gasses in the farm, ranch, and forest soils, where they are beneficial instead of harmful. regenerationvermont.org/the-path-forward-regeneration-agriculture-in-vermont/...
