ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

If we are to truly transform agriculture, we will need to move away from extractive systems that focus on depleting our soil, climate, and people and towards a regenerative system that brings together and bolsters all of your systems. To step into an exploratory journey toward that aim, this workshop will serve as an interactive program where all voices and perspectives are welcome as we explore what could be. We are looking at how the food and fashion industries can cooperate to de-risk for themselves and farmers the transition to a new set of practices that encourage biodiversity, soil health restoration, water conservation and stable livelihoods for farmers and all who touch the supply web in the food and fashion industries. Please join us and let’s begin to imagine how to move toward a truly life affirming supply web.
