From Crops to Climate: Can Regenerative Agriculture Save our Land & the Planet?

One Financial Center 38th Floor
Boston , MA 02111

Imagine a safe, sustainable way to dramatically reduce total annual U.S. carbon emissions from the atmosphere – without any geo-engineering or new technology breakthroughs. According to the USDA, this is not a fantasy. Using regenerative agriculture techniques, we could sustainably offset much of the country’s carbon footprint— while at the same time making soils healthier, increasing yields, and boosting resilience to climate change. Legislation to incentivize these practices is now pending at both the state and federal level. 
 
Join E2 New England and experts to discuss this innovative approach to reducing carbon emissions while strengthening the farm economy here and around the world.
