California Seeking to Define ‘Regenerative Agriculture’

The California Department of Food and Agriculture and the State Board of Food and Agriculture have announced that they will be hosting five public listening sessions to receive comments that will help define “regenerative agriculture” for state policies and programs. They note that defining “regenerative agriculture” and its associated practices helps to formalize holistic methods of farming that are designed to protect, sustain, and enhance natural resources on our farms and farming communities throughout California. The first, online listening session is scheduled for December 6, 2023.
