What are you doing on Earth Day? Join me at the We Don’t Have Time Citizen’s Action Network NATURE IN A RACE TO ZERO Conference
“On April 22ncd the world celebrates Earth Day. It is difficult these days to use the word celebrates when predictions and in fact current conditions portend such an ominous future. We have literally run out of time to make the changes necessary to stop climate change, but we can lessen the impact to save society and the planet.
“My 30 years of experience in agriculture compels me to urge every citizen to join the fight to save our land, implement regenerative agricultural practices, and support our farmers and ranchers to do what’s right. That’s what’s needed to ensure we have a livable future—a future where we can not only grow enough food, but where we retain enough farmland and manage it wisely to provide essential environmental services. In other words, I believe that farming done right can support human life and heal the planet. I look forward to sharing my organization’s theory of change and outlining actions that everyone who eats can take to help see regenerative practices implemented at the scale necessary to secure this future.”

American Farmland Trust is the only national organization that takes a holistic approach to agriculture, focusing on the land itself, the agricultural practices used on that land, and the farmers and ranchers who do the work. AFT launched the conservation agriculture movement and continues to raise public awareness through our No Farms, No Food message. Since our founding in 1980, AFT has helped permanently protect over 6.8 million acres of agricultural lands, advanced environmentally-sound farming practices on millions of additional acres, and supported thousands of farm families.
We Don’t Have Time is a movement and a tech startup that leverages the power of social media to hold leaders and companies accountable for climate change. The founders and backers of We Don’t Have Time are ordinary people with various backgrounds and experiences. Aware, but not experts in this field, our lowest common denominator is that all of us at some point in life “woke up” and started to worry and learn about the Earth’s health. We each took a decision: “I will no longer be passive and just watch. If I don’t do anything, who will do it for me?” That was the seed for We Don’t Have Time. And it’s our shared belief, motivation and ambition.
