A Moment in Time: Black Lives Matter and Regenerative Agriculture
From Priya Tuvell
How can regenerative agriculture be proactive at this moment of consciousness in our society to diversify and become truly inclusive? Both Black Lives Matter and regenerative agriculture have swiftly become resonating movements with active and energized engagement from across society. What role does regenerative agriculture play in making our society healthy through robust diversity? Leonard Diggs, Director of Operations and Farming Education at Pie Ranch in Central California, seeks to address this topic and bridge the gap between cultural and soil diversity.
Leonard Diggs has managed sustainable and organic farms in northern California for over 30 years, including a 365 acre college farm with annual and perennial crops, a winery, livestock and a mixed species forest. Leonard has also instructed a wide range of agricultural classes and served on numerous agricultural boards and committees in an effort to share his experiences with current and future generations of gardeners and farmers.
