ARE SANCTUARY FARMS A SOLUTION TO OUR BROKEN FOOD SYSTEM?
In the search for solutions to our broken food system and looming climate chaos, a revolution — or perhaps a devolution — has begun. In attempts to counteract noted harms resulting from industrialized agriculture, on the land, to the air, animals and people, some farmers are now looking backwards, to traditional methods of food production. Regenerative, organic, and veganic farming each hope to be the answer to the question of how to grow food while also rebuilding soil and trapping carbon.
