Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, Oct. 24

October 18, 2019

As part of the Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, there are will be a video presentation and panel discussion on “Regenerative Agriculture: Farming to Enhance Ecosystem Services and Sequester Carbon.”

Regenerative agriculture is a system for producing crops while sustaining or increasing ecosystem services — including enriching soils, enhancing biodiversity, and protecting watershed functions. It combines insights from sustainable agricultural systems across the globe. With its focus on developing healthy soils and carbon sequestration, regenerative agriculture provides an alternative to fossil fuel dependent industrial agriculture by limiting greenhouse gas emissions while increasing crop yields and farm resilience.

There will be three short video presentations on regenerative agriculture followed by a panel discussion. In the panel discussion we will hear from five local experts in regenerative agriculture: Jacques and Amy Neukom, Levon Durr, Monty Caid, and Sarah Schuette. The evening’s talk will be moderated by Meriel Mees.

The Sustainable Futures Speaker Series is sponsored by the Schatz Energy Research Center, the Environment & Community graduate program, and the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences at Humboldt State University.

The presentation will take place Thursday, October 24, at 5 p.m. in Founders Hall 118 on the HSU campus.
