Does a solution to climate change lay in the dirt under our feet? A holistic approach to farming and the environment is ancient while informing decisions based on science and data is relatively new. Regenerative agriculture is the paradox of old practices and new methods with promising solutions to climate change while fostering agricultural sustainability and resilience. We will explore what regenerative agriculture means, how it works, the challenges, and what you can do to support it.

Speakers include Ivo Jeramaz, Winemaker and Vice President of Vineyards & Production at Grgich Hills Estate, Linda Burch, CEO of the Alice Waters Institute for Edible Education and Regenerative Agriculture, Jessica Chiartas, President and Lead Scientist at RegenScore, and Cristina Lazcano, soil ecologist and Associate Professor at the Department of Land, Air and Water Resources at UC Davis.

The event will be presented in person on the UC Davis campus. Includes a welcome reception with hosted bar and light refreshments and a pop-up exhibit by the UC Davis Library Archives and Special Collections.
