Organic Grower Summit:

Regenerative agriculture and what it means for organic

'Regenerative agriculture' is a fast-growing term helping reshape how food is grown, but what does it mean for the organic fresh produce industry? A panel of organic industry leaders will address the trends and future outlook related to regenerative and organic production at the Organic Grower Summit 2023, presented by Western Growers and OPN.

'Regenerative—What Does it Mean for Organic?' will feature three experts in organic fresh produce discussing the relationship between regenerative and organic agriculture. Moderated by Jessy Beckett Parr, chief program officer at CCOF, the session will include panelists Eric Morgan, vice president of environmental science and resources for Braga Fresh; Vernon Peterson, president and founder of Abundant Harvest Organics; and Rebecca Gildiner, director of sustainability at Daily Harvest.

As regenerative agriculture continues evolving, questions related to how it will impact organic production are front and center. What does the rise in the use of this buzzword mean for organic, and how are companies defining the relationship between regenerative and organic?

Described as an alternative means of producing food, with claims of lessening negative environmental and social impacts, regenerative agriculture is designed to prioritize soil health and create farm systems that work in harmony with nature to improve the quality of life.

“As an organic community, we need to stay informed and integrated into the regenerative conversation. As market forces push for the adoption of regenerative claims and language, what does this mean for the organic brand and label?” said Parr. “This panel will address the trends and standards of regenerative organic marketing and certification.”

The sixth annual Organic Grower Summit is designed to provide information vital to organic growers and producers as well as an overview of the opportunities and challenges in the production of organic fresh food.

Highlighting the event is a sold-out trade show floor featuring soil amendment, ag tech, food safety, packaging, and equipment exhibitors who will have the opportunity to connect with organic field production staff, supply chain managers, pest management advisors, and food safety experts.

“OGS 2023 will provide up-to-date resources and information to support the continued success of organic producers, with an emphasis on the changing organic production landscape as well as the role of ag technology,” said Matt Seeley, CEO of Organic Produce Network. “From seed to soil to harvest, our goal is to present the most relevant and timely information on the most important subjects and issues facing organic production.”
