The Holistic Health Community in collaboration with the Morty and Gloria Wolosoff Foundation presents Regenerative Principles Guiding Resilient Communities with Brian Farmer

This community zoom meeting will be a broad overview of regenerative principles as they apply to agriculture and community development, with an emphasis on ways to incorporate the healing plant cannabis into the design equation. This initial session is meant to be a discussion starter for the Holistic Health Community as it visions ways to fully incorporate regenerative principles into the mission and work of building a physical community presence in the Hudson valley. The session will begin with a presentation by Facilitator Brian Farmer, Organic grower, local business owner and developer of regenerative and sustainability standards for cannabis production.

Some ideas explored include,

  • What we mean when we say “regenerative”
  • Building soil as a way to build community, “Soil to Soul”
  • The Cannabis economy as a vehicle for economic and community vitality.
  • Planning community around agriculture.
