Imagine taking an entire farm and putting it underwater in the ocean. 

Now imagine that the crops you grow don't need to be watered and don’t need pesticides, fertilizer, feed, or soil to grow. 

Then imagine that this farm soaks up loads of carbon and nitrogen to help mitigate global warming. 

And then imagine that the food it creates is a nutrient-dense superfood that’s low in fat and calories.

That’s the power of regenerative ocean farming!


In this episode I’m joined by author and ocean farmer, Bren Smith. Bren pioneered the development of regenerative ocean farming and was named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s “25 People Shaping the Future” as well as being featured in TIME magazine’s “Best Inventions of 2017”. He's also the co-founder of GreenWave, a non-profit that trains and supports regenerative ocean farmers.
