Please join us via zoom to hear Mike Friend and Harry Pulliam speak about agriculture policies and practices. Conventional agriculture generates a significant amount of greenhouse gases, in addition to other harmful impacts on water, soil, and human health. However, there are alternative farming practices that can repair the harm, sequester carbon, and support thriving communities, both human and non-human. Come learn how we at 350 Wisconsin can support farmers to use these regenerative practices!
