Please join SOIL4CLIMATE INC for this discussion with well-known regenerative farmer Gabe Brown. Gabe, featured in the Netflix documentary Kiss the Ground and author of Dirt to Soil: One Family’s Journey into Regenerative Agriculture, has used no fossil fuel-based fertilizer on his 5,000-acre North Dakota farm since 2008.

We also need to think about rebuilding our local food processing infrastructure particularly for small grains -- https://northeastgrainshed.com/graindirectory/ Turning cover crops into flour, food, and beer!

Count Eagle’s Flight Farm in Cat! As you know this is also what I believe is the way forward and have experienced the joy kids get when they are learning and working on the land. I’m thrilled this coalition is happening and will be joining in with you and hope to have you come to Eagle’s Flight Farm in Orwell .

Very inspiring comparison photos, Jesse!

How do you regard the dissonance or conflict between large-scale, commodified, globalized, financialized PES schemes based on practices and modeling, and more localized efforts where learning and feedback could be more tightly coupled?
Gene Jonas
01:31:59
What can we do to get more farmers on the land here in New England so as to move towards FSNE’s vision of 50 by 60?

I’m thrilled to learn about “The Regenerative Food Network” and will be in touch James. I’m in Addison county, VT. which is heavily influenced by conventional dairy. I’ve transitioned this former dairy farm into a no till, organic homestead with a lot of bio-diversity. I’ve taken a lot of “guff” over the years about my methods of doing things (permaculture based), but now people seem to be more open to these ideas; it give me some hope.

It's amazing how a pandemic and empty grocery shelves can focus the mind on our messed up not-local food system.
Denise Savageau - NACD Northeast Region Chair
01:34:00
This has been really great. I have to jump off shortly for and environmental justice committee I am working with. Looking forward to sharing this recording with folks in CT and across the NACD northeast region and connecting with folks.Especially interested in the farm system and infrastructure in the CT River Valley from VT/NH/ to MA and CT.

To Maddie’s point, there seems to be a divide regarding the role of cows in improving the environment. How do you square theories like Allan Savory’s with the research done by EATLancet, the IPCC and other climate related researchers, the clearly shows that U.S. needs to cut beef and dairy consumption by at least 50% if we hope to meet the Paris Agreement goals.

Question for Jesse -- how is RFN dealing with the issue of lack of slaughter house capacity?
Adam Kotin (he/him) - FSNE
01:38:15
Maddie’s presentation had a note about the challenges in addressing ‘whole systems function’. There seems to be a tension between incentivizing ‘one-off’ practices vs. moving towards holistic approaches to soil health planning across the whole of farm management. How do we use incentives to spur that move towards regenerative ag as a holistic ‘system’ rather than just sporadic adoption of practices one-by-one?

How do we further the dialogue with large darie
Grace Gershuny

I'd like to hear more about how presenters are working on land access for marginalized communities, human & cultural diversity, and social justice in the food system. Thanks!
