This beautiful film highlights how regenerative agriculture is a way to use the planet’s own natural systems to rebalance our climate. There IS a way leave a healthy planet for my children and future grandchildren.
As a mother with young children, I often find myself becoming paralyzed by statistics such as the UN currently reporting we only have 60 years of food-growing top soil remaining if current soil degradation continues. That means at current rates, when my eight-month-old son is sixty, our planet would no longer be able to grow food. That is terrifying.
BUT, we can change that.
The regenerative agriculture movement is growing.
◾ You cannot pick up a farming magazine today without reading about soil health. Five years ago that was not the case. This spring Jako Farm, along with Brown’s Ranch (owned by Gabe Brown, who is featured in the film), was even featured in John Deere’s magazine, The Furrow, discussing how implementing soil health principles leads to making a family farm successful.
◾ Last fall our farm hosted Stand Up for Soil which brought over 350 people together to talk about soil health and another film, Farmer’s Footprint.
◾ General Mills launched a program that encourages regenerative agriculture. They picked our local Cheney Lake Watershed community as an area for a pilot project. The last two years Jako Farm has served meals for those farmers when they gather for educational meetings. It has been SO encouraging to see real changes happening in our own community!
YOU are already a part of the solution. Your dollars directly support regenerative agriculture at Jako Farm and contribute to offsetting carbon emissions. When you choose to eat a beautifully seared ribeye, raised following regenerative practices, you are helping fight climate change!
