Ted Talk: The case for regenerative agriculture in the age of climate change

Angus McIntosh’s life changed beyond recognition after he read The Omnivore’s Dilemma – Michael Pollan’s celebrated book on the personal and global health implications of the food choices we make. The book inspired him to drop everything and leave his life as a stockbroker in London working for Goldman Sachs, to become a regenerative farmer in Stellenbosch, near Cape Town in South Africa. In this enthralling talk, he takes us on a tour de force of how regenerative agriculture produces healthier food, creates more employment, and heals the Earth, in stark contrast to the all round damaging effects of monoculture. In the process, he shows us how his own sense of purpose has been transformed.
