Midwest Row Crop Collaborative conducts campaign to normalize regenerative agriculture
Regenerative agriculture is gaining momentum as row crop producers express increasing interest in the benefits of more resilient farming systems and more companies invest in strategies to meet environmental goals and support robust agricultural systems. Responding to this need, and with funding from the Walmart Foundation, Midwest Row Crop Collaborative (MRCC) members are embarking on a targeted media campaign to help increase acceptance of regenerative agriculture within farming communities.
The role of food and agriculture in systems change
The food and agriculture system has an important role in addressing the current crises of climate change, public health, social and racial justice, and a fragile democracy. Through relationships, partnerships, and systems thinking, change is possible. From farmers to corporate executives, each has a role in transforming how the world is fed and mitigating climate change through regenerative agricultural practices.
