Regenerative agriculture

Monocrop lawns could become annual and perennial gardens. Monocrop fields could become public parks full of fruit trees, perennial plants, vines, vegetables, salad greens, and herbs reducing or eliminating transportation as well as packaging costs and waste while potentially creating local jobs. Instead of poisoning plants, insects, and ourselves with costly pollutants, we can build up diverse and productive ecosystems to heal and protect the soil. We can work with natural systems to reduce inputs making fresh healthy food convenient and attractive to humans, domestic, and wild animals alike.

Regenerative businesses

Solar, Wind, Hydro, and more can and must replace fossil fuels in ways that you may not have yet considered and I hope that by working together we can find ways to live sustainably regenerativly before 2040
