We asked the panelists to give us some advice on what we can all do to help transition our East End to a regenerative food system and economy: Talk About It, Buy Local through Farmstands and Oystergrowers, Use the Power of Your Purse, Know your Farmer, Know your Landscaper, Know your Park (and ask what are you putting on the soil and why? There is a suite of regenerative practices that enrich soil with no chemicals!)
