In this Our Changing Climate climate change video essay, I answer the question, can small-scale farming feed the world? Specifically, I look at how industrial farming and the green revolution have led to increased farming emissions and severely depleted soil health. Small-scale farming, which I define as regenerative farms employing traditional knowledge, crop diversity, and low carbon tools, can not only feed the world but do so in a manner that mitigates and possibly reverses the effects of climate chaos and industrial agriculture. Small-scale farms also offer a place to build movement power. A refuge to build people power and transform our current untenable capitalist system. Small-scale farming can mean big change.
