Jeff Moyer: A Journey Into Our Food System: Looking Beyond Short-Term Yields to a Regenerative/Organic System
This experienced organic farmer will explore some of the issues of our current food production system which was created using short-term yields as the primary, or in some cases the only, measurement for success. He discusses alternative resource management practices that can not only improve the model, but in many cases reverse the current trend balancing out our need for high-quality and abundant food with our need to improve soil and human health. He expands the conversation to include scientific data, social and political ramifications and discuss the role each of us plays in the success or failure of long-term food production and the impacts our decisions have on our personal health and the well-being of the planet.
