Susan Jennings on awakenings and regenerative farming's role in creating more resilient food systems

av Worlds in Transition - Världar i Omställning | Publicerades 7/9/2020

Susan Jennings is the director of the non-profit organization Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions, in Ohio, whose mission is to educate people about how to build community resilience in the midst of climate change. Recently this NGO bought a piece of land to create its own educational centre around regenerative agricultural practices for farmers, local community members and nearby schools. In our conversation, we speak of Susan’s own journey into regenerative practices and farming, which evolved from a chain of events following a spiritual awakening many years ago. We also speak of how all the disruptions that the covid-crisis have created in the conventional food supply chain has created a massive awareness about the urgent need to transition to more local and resilient ways of producing and consuming food.
