Regenerative Agriculture in Today's Gardens & Landscapes
Rodale Institute

Soil health is intrinsically linked to the total health of our food system. Soil health affects everything from plant health to human wellbeing and the future of our planet. Regenerative prioritizes soil health while simultaneously encompassing high standards for animal welfare and worker fairness. The idea is to create farm systems that work in harmony with nature to improve quality of life for every creature involved.

How Climate Change Transforms Your Landscape
Richard Restuccia

Water shortages may be catastrophic for horticulture and agriculture. With climate change happening at an unprecedented rate, it will continue to produce more extreme weather that will have an enormous impact on the industry. Landscapes need water to survive, and climate change is making it harder to get all the water you need at an affordable price. However, water is already complex enough without adding climate change and drought.
