What Real Change in the Food System Looks Like with Sara Harper
Show Notes

Sara Harper, the founder of Our Grounded Growth,has been a long-time mentor to me when I was just learning what sustainable agriculture meant. I like to think of her as a matchmaker between farmers and brands who are interested in sourcing regenerative ingredients. Sara is able to talk the talk of the private sector, policy makers and the farm community, which is why she is one of a kind!

Our conversation covers so many of the big issues in why major change is challenging in our political system, why greenwashing can be both beneficial and dangerous and why regenerative agriculture can be financially beneficial for famers.
