Regenerative Agriculture as a Framework for Advancing Climate-Friendly Landscapes
Regenerative agriculture is a key component for solving the global climate crisis and providing land stewards with rich soil and clean water. It also must play an important role in addressing land disparities, farmworker justice, and flourishing rural economies. The Regenerative Agriculture Foundation provides grants and programming to support on-the-ground organizations and further policy and market opportunities for regenerative practices. In this session, RAF executive director Mark Muller will talk about the importance of building regenerative landscapes in the context of our changing climate.
Mark Muller joined Regenerative Agriculture Foundation (RAF) in March 2020 after spending over 20 years working on related issues including agricultural conservation, Midwest water quality, racial equity in the food system, and effective federal food and agricultural policy. Most recently Mark served as director of the Mississippi River program at the McKnight Foundation, and prior to that he directed the Food & Community Fellows program at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. He also spent two years teaching high school in New York City and 18 months volunteering in Honduras and Guatemala. He and his spouse and three children live in south Minneapolis.
