Regenerative grazing is all the rage. Many proponents of the Green New Deal center grazing as an integral part of fighting climate change, presidential hopeful Tim Ryan is advocating for more grazing, even vegan businesses are supporting the grazing movement (we’ll cover this in an upcoming article, follow us so you don’t miss it!). And for years, Seed the Commons has pushed back and set a different narrative. We’ve brought a different model – ecological farming without animal exploitation – to the environmental movement, to the animal rights movement and to the mainstream.
Read about some of our work in a recent feature on Seed the Commons in the newly launched Pacific Roots Magazine.
While cattle ranching continues to wreck havoc on ecosystems throughout North America, the regenerative grazing movement is succeeding in packaging it as a boon for the land. I am delighted to help dismantle its claims in the Shame of Point Reyes, an important new documentary on the devastation caused by dairy ranching in Point Reyes National Seashore. Please watch, share and get involved!
We are also very excited to share our updated veganic farm map, which now includes Mexico and Canada in addition to the United States. These farms are a glimpse into a more compassionate and climate-friendly food system – this is where the potential for true regenerative agriculture lies. If you know of any farms in North America that should be featured, please email Dr. Mona Seymour.
Now, we need your support to continue to build a veganic future.
For the past four years, Seed the Commons has been the only organization to advocate for veganic farming at Soil Not Oil, an important grassroots environmental conference that largely centers grazing. Every year, our panel has included a veganic farmer because it is vital that their perspective be included in the farming and environmental movements. Please make a donation so that we can invite a veganic farmer again this year and to support our pro-veganic outreach and programming.
Enjoy the summer,
