What Does Responsible Sourcing Mean?
We are excited to announce the first of what will be a series of webinars that explore the specific steps involved in sourcing botanicals in ways that are good for the plants, for people, and for the planet.
The first of these, Paths to Regenerative Farming in the Botanical Industry: A Conversation with Gaia Herbs, Herb Pharm, and MegaFood, will showcase three models for implementing regenerative agricultural practices. The speakers will discuss how other companies can apply these or similar practices, and highlight strategies that can work for the industry as a whole. Attendees will walk away with ideas and tools about where to start and/or continue programs in regenerative farming for their own companies and supply network. You will also leave with a clearer understanding of the issues and questions to ask to ensure that botanical companies are implementing practices that support healthy soils and farming communities.
Date: Thursday, Dec. 3, 2-3 pm EDT.
