Regenerating Relationships: Humans, ecosystems, and the food we eat

Michael Bomford | Philip Loring | Angel Beyde2023-11-22

There is an inherent relationship between people, land, and our food systems.

On November 22nd, we heard from farmer Michael Bomford, PhD, Chair of the Department of Sustainable Agriculture at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, and Dr. Philip Loring, ecological anthropologist from the University of Guelph, as they discussed how we might strengthen our collective relationship with the landscape, our food, and each other. Facilitator Angel Beyde, of the EFAO, moderated the conversation.

This webinar is the first in a 6-part webinar series, running from November 2023 to March 2024, as part of the Stories of Regeneration campaign. The campaign aims to enhance public awareness around regenerative agriculture practices and how farmers contribute to combating climate change and food systems issues.
