Nicolette Hahn Niman, Gabe Brown, Fred Provenza & Charles Massy: Panel on Breaking Down Barriers in Agriculture MP3
In this unique meeting of the minds, three perspectives on farming, behavior and soil health will converge. North Dakota regenerative farmer Gabe Brown, behavioral ecologist and author Fred Provenza, and farmer turned behavioral ecologist and author Charles Massy, will provide deeper understanding of the complex connections between human and animal behavior, soil and plant health, human health and the overall health of our planet. They will set the stage for building a framework for addressing the damaging agricultural systems that predominate today and explore the various systems and solutions that regenerative agriculture can offer today and for the future. You won’t want to miss this chance to hear from and engage with these influential thought leaders, including rancher, environmental attorney and author Nicolette Hahn Niman.
Moderated by Nicolette Hahn Niman, the author of Defending Beef. She previously served as senior attorney for the Waterkeeper Alliance, running their campaign to reform the concentrated production of livestock and poultry.
