Find out at the upcoming Rancher Advocacy Program virtual summit, hosted by Rowdy Girl Sanctuary!
The plant-based food industry is exploding in response to the demand for a more sustainable, equitable food system that is not dominated by a handful of mega-corporations. The Rancher Advocacy Program (RAP) Summit was created to bring together thought-leaders from business, science, government and medicine to share scalable and scientifically-backed solutions. This 4th annual summit will feature a discussion surrounding how the next generation of farmers can
convert their land away from animal-based business models.
Hear firsthand from farmers currently transitioning and much more!
The event will feature a special appearance by farmers Jennifer and Rodney Barrett, whose poultry farm is currently being transitioned into a state-of-the-art mushroom growing operation by the RAP team. This project will serve as an unprecedented model for other farmers to transition.
Panelists include Connie Spence of the Agriculture Fairness Alliance, a national advocacy organization lobbying for policies to make plant-based foods more accessible and affordable; Carl Jorgensen of the Plant Based Foods Institute which helps businesses drive a shift to a plant-based food system; David Ebert of Animal Defense Partnership which provides pro-bono counsel for animal protection charities; Denis Vidmar, whose expertise is guiding the Barrett Farm transition, is founder of The Mushroom Hub, a fungi company; Jacque Salomon of Seeds to Inspire Foundation which provides education about healthful foods and lifestyle to the Covid-19 vulnerable and those affected by climate destabilization; and Eloisa Trinidad of Chilis on Wheels which works to make veganism accessible to communities in need through food relief, policy, education and mentorship.
