Regenerative Ag: A system approach to management and science 7/16/2020
From Priya Tuvell on July 24th, 2020
Please join us on Thursday, July 16th from 11:00 to 1:00 PST. Speakers will be discussing approaches to and outcomes of systems-level science conducted on regeneratively managed farms, along with the lessons learned through years of implementing regenerative practices on diverse operations.
Dr. Jonathan Lundgren, Ecdysis Foundation & Blue Dasher Farms
Bringing systems-level science to fuel the regenerative agriculture movement
Ecdysis Foundation is conducting large-scale validation projects on regenerative agriculture systems across North America. The results on soil health, biodiversity, ecosystem function, profitability and yields are helping to provide an empirical basis for fostering change in food production. To accomplish this, we are rethinking how applied agricultural science is conducted.
Ward & Rosie Burroughs, Burroughs Family Farms
Over 100 years of farming heritage and sustainable living
Over 100 years and 5 generations later, Ward and Rosie Burroughs along with their grown children, continue the family’s farming tradition in the northern San Joaquin Valley. What started out as a small dairy in 1906, is now a full circle collaboration of farms that are family-owned and operated, producing organic almonds, olive oil, milk, cheese, and grass-based eggs and meats. Burroughs Family Farms is a collaborative effort to offer hand-raised and sustainably-grown products directly to consumers while protecting soil and water for generations to come.
