Growing food and fiber with industrial techniques has devastated our climate. Conventional agriculture contributes up to 25% of the emissions driving the climate crisis. But there’s another way. Regenerative organic methods can build healthy soil which helps draw carbon back in the ground.

Because healthy soil traps carbon, many believe that regenerative organic farming methods have the potential to change the way we grow food and fiber and restore the health of our soil and climate. These practices help build healthy soil that could help draw down more carbon from the atmosphere than conventional methods. Regenerative organic agriculture could be a viable way to help stop climate change before it’s too late.
