Thank you to all who made it out on November 3 for our latest community event, For the Love of Dirt, which focused on the power of regenerative agriculture. The message was clear. The time for us all to act is now, and the solution is literally under our feet! Thank you to our panelists for sharing their insights:

John Roulac, CEO of Nutiva – the First-Mover, who helped first introduce the idea of regenerative agriculture to many of us within the industry
David Bronner, CEO of Dr. Bronner’s – the Accelerator, who is championing widespread adoption by activating industry players and consumers alike
John Foraker, CEO of Annie’s Homegrown – the Scale Doctor, who is making this progressive practice a viable option for large-scale producers like General Mills, and Campbells
and Lara Dickinson – Executive Director of OSC2 – the Star Convener, who in partnership with Sustainable Fair Trade Association is developing a climate beneficial action plan for the natural products industry.
