Writing in The Conversation, author Stephanie Anderson explains the concept of regenerative agriculture, which restores resources. Anderson explores some of the circumstances that have shaped current conventional agricultural practices, and she also discusses how regenerative agriculture can help farmers deal with climate change by making their operations more resilient and sequestering carbon. Anderson cites examples of some farmers who are already practicing regenerative agriculture, and notes that researchers with Project Drawdown estimate that 1 billion acres worldwide will be devoted to regenerative agriculture by 2050.
