“Our soil is in crisis. Nearly a third of our soil has already been degraded, and the UN estimates we only have 60 years left of topsoil left if we continue with current farming practices. With 95% of our food grown in soil, it’s clear that we need a radical change.

Enter Regenerative Agriculture, a farming approach aiming to rebuild soil health and farming communities, while also supporting carbon sequestration and reversing climate change. There is a lot of excitement about the potential for regenerative agriculture to transform our food system, with major industry players like General Mills, Applegate and Patagonia all investing in regenerative agriculture. Yet it is still very much the wild west.

Join us at Regenerative AgTech, in partnership with Applegate’s THE NEW FOOD COLLECTIVE™, WeWork Food Labs and AgFunder, to learn about the current state of regenerative agriculture and how technology is helping farmers regenerate their soil. The Rodale Institute, Indigo Ag, PastureMapand OpenTEAM will give a deep dive into their business models, technologies and certifications.”
