Quivira Coalition, Holistic Management International, and the American Grassfed Association are excited to present a sneak peek PUBLIC COMMUNITY SCREENING of the new docu-series by Peter Byck – Roots So Deep (you can see the devil down there) at REGENERATE 2023.
Roots So Deep is a four-part documentary series all about inventive farmers and maverick scientists asking if an underutilized way to graze cattle, that mimics the way bison once roamed the land, can help get farmers out of debt, restore our depleted soils, rebuild wildlife habitat and draw down carbon? Cattle have been seen as eco-villains for a long time. What if they can help save us from catastrophic climate change?
For this special screening, we will be showing Episodes 1 and 4. There will be a Q&A and discussion with director Peter Byck following the show.

Early Praise for Roots So Deep:
“What I like so much about these films is the genuine compassion and understanding shown for farmers, no matter how they farm. Peter Byck is a terrific interviewer, even of people who view the world from different perspectives. Anyone who wants to know what regenerative agriculture can do, in theory and in practice, will watch these films with pleasure and admiration for the hard work that goes into producing food.” –Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, Emerita, New York University, and author of books about food politics.
“This is, hands-down, the best agriculture filmmaking I’ve ever seen. The characters are all so likable and captivating, the graphics are stunning, and I learned a ton about ecology… but none of that would matter without Peter Byck’s soul and empathy as storyteller.” –Bill Weir, CNN
