Regenerative Grazing NC

Our Team

We are an interdisciplinary team of graduate and undergraduate students collaborating with faculty on a regenerative grazing project and developing a carbon offsets protocol under the auspices of a Duke University Bass Connections Project. We spent the fall learning about regenerative grazing from industry experts, farmers, government stakeholders, and attending conferences. From this, we have split our group into two, one group focusing on creating a carbon offsets protocol and the other team working on leveraging current policies and improving existing policies to support regenerative grazing practices.

Our Thanks

The project is grateful for the support of the Bass Connections Program, the staff of its Energy and Environment Theme, and especially Bryan Koen. The project would not have been possible without the vision and organizing efforts of Tani Colbert-Sangree.
