Ag & Health Investing

Rooted in Health Event

Investing at the Intersection of Regenerative Agriculture & Nutrition

June 22-23 • 9:00 am-1:00 pm PDT • 12-4 pm EDT

Virtual Event

The way we do agriculture, the way we manage our soils, the way we process our food, and the way we get our food from farm to table all influence the levels of nutrients we find in our food. Conversely, there are also many things that influence our body’s ability to use what nutrients are available. Better understanding this complex relationship between agriculture, food, and health is of increasing importance as we face both environmental and health crises ranging from climate change to chronic illness and exorbitant costs due to a primarily reactive healthcare system.

Regenerative food systems – ones that value nutrient density from soil to stomach – are seen as a solution to these challenges and present enormous opportunities for further learning, development, and investment. RFSI’s Rooted in Health event will spend two days diving in to the under-explored connection between regenerative agriculture and nutrition, the pathways to improving human health through agriculture that already exist, the work yet to be done, and the investment levers that may be pulled to advance human health and nutrition.



Addressing an issue as complex as this requires a systems-based, multi-stakeholder approach. This event is for investors and practitioners across the agriculture, food, and health spectrum and is designed to provide:

  • A foundation of understanding of the connections and complexities that exist between agriculture, food, and health
  • A roadmap for work to be done by various stakeholders involved
  • An exploration of the investment and funding opportunities that exist along the path from soil to stomach
  • A vision for what comes next and how you fit in


Agenda | Virtual Program

This event will be held virtually June 22-23 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. PDT each day. In addition to the learning sessions, each daily program will be followed by opportunities to connect at the end of the program.

Day 1 will focus on framing the problem, making the connection between agricultural practices and human nutrition, and defining the work to be done and who will do the work.

Day 2 will dive deeper into the work to be done, the investment levers that are being pulled right now, and where opportunities exist to advance this space.
