Solutions Under Our Feet: Regenerative Agriculture

Sep 13, 2015

The Food Guys describe an article profiling one type of "regenerative agriculture," a form of organic, sustainable farming. "It's really about how small farmers are feeding the world, from the ground up, rather than agribusiness, with its monocultures, GMO crops, and poorly-paid farm workers," says Greg Patent.

Integrating a poultry operation into grain-growing, and combining both with solar power generation and an aquaponics garden bed - all on one acre of land - is an example of small-scale regenerative agriculture that can be practiced by families or small cooperatives.
