RFK Jr., to Host Virtual Roundtable on Revitalizing Our Food, Farms, and Soil: The Farmers Speak Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. ET
Agriculture provides a pathway to human and global planetary health. Our wild and working landscapes — when stewarded harmoniously — provide oxygen and nutrient-dense food, sequester carbon, and regulate the hydrological cycle which is earth’s air conditioning system, essential for climate resilience and mitigation.
America has much of the best agricultural soil on earth. Yet for decades now, America's farmers have been devastated by policies that have driven up farm debt and increased their vulnerabilities to climate change. Fortunately, a new generation of farmers is focused on working with nature by rebuilding their soils using regenerative practices that increase biodiversity, improve their resilience to drought and floods, and increase on-farm profits.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is going to make agricultural policy a top priority to turn the nation's farms around.
How will he do that? He'll start by learning from some of America's most innovative farmers — and you can join him in this learning.
Join us live on Aug. 3 for a roundtable with some amazing farmers:
Elizabeth Kucinich: organic and regenerative agriculture champion who will moderate the conversation between Mr. Kennedy and the farmers
Ben Dobson of Hudson Carbon in Hudson Valley, New York
Gail Fuller of Fuller Farms in Kansas
Will Harris of White Oak Pastures in Georgia
Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin of Tree Range Farms, Inc. in Minnesota
Kerry Hoffschneider of The Graze Master Group in Nebraska
John Kempf of Advancing Eco Agriculture of Ohio
Bob Quinn of Quinn Farm & Ranch in Montana
Judith McGeary of Farm & Ranch Freedom Alliance in Texas
Wayne Swanson of Swanson Family Farm in Georgia
Together, we will hear stories of heartbreak and success, loss and regeneration, as Mr. Kennedy charts a course for the revitalization of farming in America.
Land stewardship and farming hold the key to human and ecological security and a livable planet. Learn the exciting ways in which we can save ourselves while developing policies that support farmers.
Please RSVP, mark your calendars, and join us LIVE on Thursday, Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. Eastern / 5 p.m. Pacific for this inspiring conversation!
