The Initiative for Regenerative Agriculture is comprised of a working group of multi-disciplinary faculty who have come together to develop collaborative research and teaching strategies for primary purpose of drawing down legacy levels of greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration and ecosystem service restoration. This science based effort will have far reaching implications across disciplines in areas of climate and food policy, agricultural husbandry practices, food justice, business models, as well as local food sheds.  The intent of this group is to spur the creation of an educational focus investigating agriculture that restores climate stability from a transdisciplinary perspective and ultimately to share best practices from the initiative’s research efforts with society and the broader agricultural community.
