Former Marlborough student Melissa Makous visited Ms. Mino’s AP Environmental Science class. Melissa gave a presentation on regenerative agriculture, which describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle.
Melissa is a former Marlborough student (2005-2009), who attended Tulane University and then transferred to UC Berkeley where she studied Society and Environment, focusing on Agroecology and Food Systems. She is currently the Livestock and Ag. Assistant Manager at The High Lonesome Ranch in Colorado and her partner Dakota Glueck is the manager!
