In conversations surrounding sustainability, a new terminology is emerging, regenerative agriculture. This presentation will explore the various definitions of regenerative agriculture and its relationship to sustainability, discuss how the food value chain is responding with regenerative agriculture practices and give examples of regenerative agriculture in action. As registered dietitians interact with consumers, the knowledge of regenerative agriculture practices within context of sustainable, resilient, and healthy food and water systems will help inform their response.
