How Big Food Can Drive Big Change: Scaling Regenerative Agriculture for Everyone

Shauna Sadowski | Head of Sustainability for the Natural & Organic Operating Unit at General Mills

With 1/3 of global greenhouse emissions coming from the food sector, it is vital that everyone—large companies, small businesses, farmers, consumers—encourage better practices to move the needle on climate change. This year’s Kirschenmann lecturer Shauna Sadowski will discuss how companies like General Mills can play a role in elevating the importance of regenerative agricultural practices, and prioritize improved soil health, biodiversity, and economic resilience in farming communities.


Come early to enjoy farm tours beginning at 2:30 pm. Sandwiches and salads will be available for purchase from Blue Hill Café and Grain Bar.
