The coronavirus pandemic has brought into sharp relief the growing problems with today’s animal agriculture system: slaughterhouses becoming COVID-19 hotbeds, workers infected, the mass animal killing system backed up, farmers told to “depopulate” the animals they raised. Many have begun to seriously consider alternatives to animal agriculture. But, what do they do, instead, to survive and thrive on their land?
STRATEGIZING ALTERNATIVES AND HOW TO TRANSITION TO THEM
To answer that question, Rowdy Girl Sanctuary in Texas is hosting this summit through its Rancher Advocacy Program in conjunction with the JaneUnChained News Network. It will feature leading names in the plant-based movement: Miyoko Schinner of Miyoko’s famed vegan cheese and butter line, filmmaker Kip Andersen of Cowspiracy and What the Health, Mercy for Animals President Leah Garces, Urban Veganic Farmer Eugene Cooke of Grow Where You Are, Dr Sailesh Rao of Climate Healers, Kim Sturla of Animal Place, Robert Grillo of Free from Harm, Rowdy Girl’s Renee King-Sonnen and Tommy Sonnen, JaneUnChained.com founder and journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell and two ranching families transitioning to a non-animal model.
There are many challenges: tradition, family, community pressures, onerous contracts with giant meat corporations, debt, and infrastructure.
Mushrooms, hemp, solar, bamboo, veganic dirt, micronutrients: there are many possible alternative products and income streams. The summit will trade ideas on what might work in different regions, types of land and facilities.
The summit will also tackle macro solutions to fund these transitions, like the formation of plant-based cooperatives and green bonds.
