Regenerative Optimism

There are lots of familiar names and faces in this beautiful article by Kate Evans in NZ Geo, and it’s worth putting some time aside to read:

REGENERATION: Regenerative agriculture is supposed to save us from climate change, freshwater pollution, soil erosion, drought, the invertebrate apocalypse and poor mental health. Does it live up to the hype?

…International studies have found regenerative farmers report higher levels of well-being, show more interest in animals and insects, less concern about weeds, and are more optimistic about the future than otherwise similar conventional farmers. They report being more observant, and seeing themselves as doing more “acting” than “reacting”
