4:35 pm
weeks., there was admissions from 50% to 80% depending on how much it was said. >> people have the idea that sustainable food is a sacrifice, but i think it's a real opportunity to engage with the way food is grown. if we can use healthy soil practices to drawdown co2, it actually makes it more nutritious, more delicious, and more resistant to climate change. >> this san francisco chef is creating a movement to bring food created through regenerative agriculture into restaurants. >> we want to create a change in the way we buy and sell food, that market needs to send a signal that people are interested in this, then farmers will change their practices. >> as our climate changes, it will have a direct impact on not just what we eat, but the things we love to eat, things like chocolate, like coffee,
