I envision a world where regenerative farming becomes the norm, because I value our planet, our soils and our world’s biodiversity. If regenerative farming were to become the new standard for farming, we would see an increase in the carbon sequestration of the planet’s lands, instead of continuing with the desertification of the world’s land that is caused by our current farming practices. Regenerative farming creates a greater understanding of the different relationships that make up the soil and plant ecosystems we farm on and would allow us to take what we need from the earth while also giving back to it, making it more sustainable. I believe that to achieve this goal, we should have subsidies in place that allow farmers to receive support from the government for the first decade or two of using regenerative farming practices to grow their crops, because of the lag between starting regenerative farming and actually seeing/experiencing the multitude of benefits that come from regenerative farming. I feel as though this is what is stopping many farmers from starting regenerative farming. This will help incentivize and support farmers a as they make the transition to this type of agriculture, as it can be difficult decision to make financially and we want to ensure they can support themselves and their families during this transition. We as individuals should also change the food we consume and focus on buying food that is good for the planet and promotes regenerative agriculture and healthy land management practices. Making sure our education systems are teaching current and future generations about the importance of preserving and protecting soil and how our agriculture practices came to be and are currently impacting our climate will be crucial in changing the way our food is grown and our land is managed.
