For Love of the Land: A Journey into Regenerative Agriculture

March 10 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

Rows of vegetables amidst trees.

“Scientists estimate that 8 percent of the carbon in the upper layers of Earth’s soils has been released into the atmosphere over the past centuries. Bringing that carbon back home through regenerative agriculture is one of the greatest opportunities to address human and climate health, along with the financial well-being of farmers.” — Project Drawdown

What if, in your “second act,” you could do something new, challenging and meaningful that would also address the problem of climate change? Our speakers, Marcia and John, have embarked on a new chapter in their lives, establishing a family farm based on the principles of soil health that are the foundation of regenerative agriculture. They will share what they have learned to date and offer thoughts on what we can all do to support this important change in agricultural practices.

John Raney’s education and early work in forest management preceded a long career in information technology leadership. Marcia McCabe recently retired from her work as a clinical psychologist at Washington University School of Medicine.

They are now the owners of Monmouth Farm in Berryton, Kansas, where they continue to expand their understanding of regenerative agriculture.
