We’re celebrating a pretty cool milestone – 50 podcast episodes!
This episode is all about reflecting on the past and anticipating the future. We’ve covered so many great topics and had the most amazing speakers join us. While we can’t highlight or cover it all in our “podcast tour”, we picked ones that impacted the podcast’s trajectory. Since it took us 5 years to reach this milestone, we also wanted to look into the future and predict where regenerative agriculture in Alberta would be in the next 5 years. To do this, we enlisted the help of Kelly Sidoryk, Holistic Management Instructor with HMI.
To wrap up our tour, the RR2CS team gathered and took a crack at determining where we thought the podcast, the organization and the progression of climate solutions would be in 2027. We’d love to hear your thoughts on where you think agriculture and climate solutions will be in 5 years. Also, if there are topics that you think we should highlight in our next 50 episodes, send us an email or message us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
A huge shoutout to Young Agrarians for partnering with us on this episode.
