3 Projects Bringing Regenerative Agriculture to Market

2019-09-27T12:16:13-04:00September 27th, 2019|

We’ve been steadily assembling the relationships, tools and people to build regenerative supply chains.  Building a new, value-added market is not easy — it requires a lot of trust-building and change management.  This is why we can’t share the details of much of what we work on in our members-only platform.

But we now have 3 projects that are far enough along that we can provide an overview to folks that might be interested in joining us.  These three projects put on display our vision, strategy and process for building a regenerative food system.

We will share an overview of our projects at our meeting this Monday in Oakland, CA co-located with the […]

The ingredients we are getting ready to bring to market will change the food industry. Talk about disruption!  Check out where we have regenerative farmers located and a snapshot of what they are growing below.

Our network also includes the well-respected international soil science and nutrient density researcher, Dr. Jill Clapperton of Rhizoterra.  Through her, our growers are able to do […]

Finding the Link Between Healthier Soil & Healthier Food — Nutrient Density Testing

2019-09-19T08:48:55-04:00September 19th, 2019|

What if you could buy food that contains more of the nutrients our bodies need to be healthy?

Turns out, we could. If ingredient makers choose to partner with regenerative farmers who conduct nutrient density testing of their crops . . . like, oh, members of Grounded Growth!?!!

In this week’s RegenerativeMinute, Grounded Growth member Dr. Jill Clapperton shares one example from this promising area of study showing how regenerative agriculture can create more nutrient dense food.

What is Nutrient Density Testing?

Nutrient density testing is one way to quantify the nutritional benefits that result from the choices farmers make about how to grow their crops.

Grounded Growth is very focused on this promising area of inquiry […]

Fear the Status Quo, Not the Risks of Change

2019-09-18T12:18:02-04:00September 18th, 2019|

By Sara Harper, Founder of Grounded Growth, LLC

I’ve never been a patient person . . . and yet, patience is most certainly required when you are trying to build a new market . . . a new way of doing things.

People have so much fear of change.  They fear it for good reasons.  Disruption means risk . . . it means there is a chance that a decision you make could hurt your team, your company . . . and of course, your family.  We are hard-wired to minimize risk for good reasons.

I know this.  I’ve lived it.  And yet, I forget that it is fear holding people […]

Grounded Growth Named As Key Organization Moving Regenerative Agriculture Forward

2019-09-18T11:45:09-04:00September 17th, 2019|

Over the years, I’ve learned so much from the New Hope Network.  From attending their amazing Natural Products Expo West & Expo East trade shows, to their natural business school course . . . to staying up-to-date on the latest consumer trends through the great content they continually provide.  As company that is trying to bridge the gap between farmers and the natural products sector, a huge part of that pathway runs right through the New Hope Network.

So, when they included us in a list of 10 amazing organizations moving regenerative agriculture forward . . . it was quite a day!  Of course, […]

Beyond Checklists — Diving Deeper into the Regenerative Mindset

2019-09-12T18:14:23-04:00September 12th, 2019|

In this week’s Regenerative Minute, we featured the regenerative mindset . . . but there’s just too much more to say about this.  So, we’ve added a companion video that gives you a bit more depth into our  thinking on this important topic.  Don’t worry, it’s only 4 minutes 🙂

Can a checklist measure what consumers find most valuable?

Regenerative agriculture is far more than a set of farming practices . . . it is a mindset. This is a critical part of the value a regenerative supply chain can provide — so in this video, we go a little deeper into the regenerative mindset and how Grounded Growth embeds it into the supply chains it is supporting.
