What is a 'regenerative food system'?

A term that is constantly evolving, and specific to each place in its social, economic, and environmental contexts.

Regenerative systems are patterns that aren’t just sustainable, but actually allow the cycle of life to continue to regrow, emerge, thrive, and replace systems that no longer serve us nor the generations to follow. They increase the production and quality of soil, food and materials and give back to the Earth and to the people for years to come. In turn, these systems also regenerate the social and economic elements of our lives.

A regenerative food system is not simply regenerative agriculture, rather, it is a way to grow, distribute and recycle our food and material resources. To learn more, check out our resources page. To share your thoughts, come to a General Circle meeting.
