5 of Our Favorite Books on Regenerative Agriculture (Part 1)

August 6, 2021

At Grassroots Carbon we constantly get asked about resources our own team uses when it comes to learning more about regenerative agriculture. It might be shocking to learn this but regenerative agriculture is not a new concept! There are thousands of ranchers all around the world leveraging regenerative practices and the number continues to grow. With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to share some of our favorite books on the topic, if you are a rancher looking to learn better practices, or a carbon buyer wanting to understand the impact of your purchase here are some great places to start. Our list was so big we decided to break it up into multiple parts so below are 5 of our favorites. Be on the lookout for a follow-up post later this month when we reveal another 5 books and even showcase some of our favorite films.
