Jenni Harris’s family owns White Oaks Pastures, a farm in Georgia USA that raises and processes animals in ways that sequester more carbon than they emit. Cows, for example, are allowed to graze and are rotated from one paddock to another, day by day, thereby adding their excretions and stirring up the soil just the right amount. The slaughter and packing of meat occurs on the farm, which offers an organic restaurant, general store, guest lodging, and training programs on regenerative agriculture. We discuss the health and climate impacts of this approach to farming. For the video, audio podcast, transcript and comments column: https://tosavetheworld.ca/episode-404-meat-and-climate/. Guest:
We produce several one-hour-long Zoom conversations each week about various aspects of six issues we address. You can watch them live and send a question to the speakers or watch the edited version later here or on our Youtube channel.
