Down to Earth: The Planet to Plate Podcast

Sep 19, 2017

Calla Rose Ostrander is an expert on climate change policy and regenerative agriculture — and the place where those worlds meet. She offers a hopeful vision of how agriculture could transform from climate problem to solution.
And it’s not only a vision. It’s actually happening, thanks to innovators like the Marin Carbon ProjectFibershed, the Carbon Cycle Institute, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service— and many more.
This work offers us a different way of seeing the world, in which trash and waste are reframed as nutrients, in which industrial systems become living systems, and in which carbon emissions become part of the carbon cycle. It’s also a world of strange bedfellows, in which farmers, environmentalists, ranchers, bureaucrats, and industrialists sit down together and talk about mutually beneficial solutions.
