On-site composting in urban spaces is not what one would traditionally think of in the Regenerative Agriculture sector. Still, compost is a crucial element in regenerating our soils and food waste concentrates in our urban areas along with our population densities making this where a solution is needed the most. At Loop Closing, we have created a circular solution to our urban food waste woes while saving costs and supporting the local economy and equity. Even if we were not saving the client money, sustainability is now a business imperative and no longer a matter of goodwill. The Regenerative Agriculture and Food Systems Summit is a venue where these views will be shared and expanded.
For example, Gina Patteson from Soil Heroes will discuss how Regenerative Agriculture should be the business model for the future. Soil Heroes is an organization that connects financial entities ("buyers" in their terms) with transitioning farmers, paying them a fair price for their services and efforts, valuing their impact, and increasing their business' worth. As a result, the buyers can also have a positive effect, helping finance environmental efforts such as capturing carbon and increasing biodiversity, producing a continuous cycle of positive outcomes. Gina will explain how regenerative agricultural practices benefit your balance sheet and how to persuade investors to finance your regenerative business. She will also dive into making a business strategy scalable and what information is essential to do so.
In Washington, DC, Loop Closing advocated for and achieved policy changes in legislation, regulations, inclusion, and grants to support regenerative and environmentally just waste management practices. Lacking aligned government policy makes achieving systemic change difficult, so we are eager to observe the panel on the Importance of Government Incentives to Support Farmers and Businesses in this Transition. They will discuss how to advocate for a robust governance framework that incentivizes sustainable practices, the need for leveling the playing eld with financial subsidies to encourage regenerative practices and not just the status quo linear practices, and how to develop networks to raise awareness and influence governments, and the role of the government in promoting consumer demand for products produced by regenerative agriculture.
