@ConserveChange I also think context-dependent definition of small farms is more rigorous a classification than universalization of <=2 ha. Berdegue y Fuentealba outlined this for LA (researchgate.net/publication/26…). Not easy to do but far more reasonable than a geographically-agnostic cut-off I’d say.

Here are some ways to get things done on climate change. Bottom line: a lot of real climate work is local, and done by folks we rarely hear about. Also: We need to stop fixating on Big Politics and DC, and see the many other places work is happening. fastcompany.com/90769120/the-s…

A critical global census of farms and farming. Trends of consolidation, the contributions of small-holders, and the importance of not conflating "family farm" with "small farm" twitter.com/mjahi/status/1…

Here is @GlobalEcoGuy on geoengineering.. a great summary link.medium.com/ZNiVaV7EOrb
We need to hit the e-brake on climate change, and we have the tools and strategies NOW. A quick primer here from @GlobalEcoGuy link.medium.com/OAuFNbVGOrb
One of the best points @LetsFishSmarter makes here is that all the banter about carbon capture & storage does is provide an argument for delaying fossil fuel abatement. It's not a serious solution. See also geoengineering twitter.com/ConserveChange…
"Nobody wants to work anymore". This is such a wicked complex societal problem, no idea what the solution could be 😏twitter.com/paulisci/statu…0M

A critical response to an irresponsible paper on global ecological restoration opportunities that ignored people and justice. twitter.com/ForrestFleisch…
“This paper presents a framework for exploring the regenerative potential of food systems, focusing on how food systems activities and technologies are organized rather than the specific technologies or practices being employed.” — @ConserveChange link.springer.com/article/10.100…

This is an excellent podcast hosted by a number of young farmers in Canada. Essential listening for anyone interested in the future of food. twitter.com/NFUcanada/stat…
it isn't just a new technique that can be compared to existing ones. It is a complete reorientation of relationships. Sounds daunting, but the good news is that this realignment is already underway under the vision & leadership of folks like @RegenPoultry spreaker.com/episode/495471…
This is the power of the regenerative paradigm. Just like industrial thinking, it can be applied in multiple context at multiple levels, from the field to the food system. link.springer.com/article/10.100…
Where industrial thinking wants uniformity, regenerative prefers diversity Where industrial thinking wants control, regenerative prefers flexibility Where industrial thinking wants scalability, regenerative prefers differentiation and relationality
Why are universities failing? Well I have lots of thoughts on the matter and they begin with the fact that we have allowed governments to usher in neoliberal capitalist administration who care not about any academic mission.

Update: happy children! Thanks @cityofguelph
Nothing more of a bummer on a hot day than arriving downtown to find the @cityofguelph market Square splash pad closed, even though the city's page says it's open!
