Making Regenerative Real

2020-09-25T12:10:08-04:00September 25th, 2020|

By Sara Harper
Just like the Velveteen Rabbit said, “Once you are Real, you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
My fervent hope is that Regenerative Agriculture becomes REAL to people . . . not just the next fad to feel virtuous about — and certainly, not a new club for the environmental elite to use against the great unwashed masses.
I want people to really understand the beauty of BALANCE — and that this is the path forward for healing […]

Download Our Free Guide Designed to Help Consumers Understand Regenerative!

Regenerative agriculture.  We talk a lot about it on our site, but there are still many people who don’t know what it is.  You might be one of them?

What you probably DO know is that you are often being misled from marketing claims about natural, sustainable or organic food that seem to provide what you are looking for — but often, do not.

To help you cut through the confusing maze of “natural food” marketing and give you an insider’s eye for knowing what’s what, we have created a new membership option — our Regenerative Consumer Circle.

Grounded Growth Brand and Farm Members Work Together on Glyphosate Challenge

2020-07-02T14:48:53-04:00June 24th, 2020|

Bella Gluten-Free Partners with Regenerative Farmer to Eliminate Glyphosate

Grounded Growth Network Announces a New Farmer-to-Brand Partnership

Bringing Regenerative, Glyphosate-Free Crops to Consumers

RICHMOND, VA, June 24, 2020 — Consumer food brands are scrambling to capitalize on the trending “glyphosate-free” bandwagon. Most brands do that by buying glyphosate residue-free tested ingredients and slapping a label on their packaging. But this approach puts all the burden on the farmer and fails to protect against farmers being pushed to use even more problematic chemicals that are just less known.

For Bella Gluten-Free owner Cecilia Ciarlo that wasn’t nearly enough. Instead, she is putting her […]

What is regenerative agriculture? How exactly can it be measured? How is it different than organic? What does it look like on the farm? These are the questions I get asked over and over again. As more consumers hear about the immense value that regeneratively-grown food can provide . . . the hunger for understanding exactly what it is has gone up.

In response, we will soon be launching online classes letting anyone and everyone learn about regenerative agriculture through the examples of our amazing partners and members. If you’d like to be notified when our options go live, sign up on our waiting list.

Is your ingredient grown with cover crops?

2020-02-25T11:49:08-05:00February 25th, 2020|

What will you say when consumers start asking about it?

Last week, Grounded Growth participated in a great conference in Ontario, Canada focusing on how regenerative agriculture principles help change farming from a job to a mission — one that not only saves the farmer money, but restores the earth we all share while creating a healthier way to grow our food!

One of the most amazing parts of the conference came from a day-long soil health workshop presented by Joel Williams  In this picture from his presentation, Joel explains that when farmers use cover crops, they are using nature (plant roots) to unlock access to nutrients that […]
