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 […]

Consumer Classes on Regenerative Agriculture – Coming Soon!

2020-02-28T16:55:37-05:00February 28th, 2020|

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.

This week, our #RegenerativeMinute video provides a snapshot of why NOT tilling the earth is so important to growing nutrient-rich food. Currently, both conventional and organic farmers rely a great deal on tillage to control weeds.  But some farmers have found a way to grow crops while keeping the ground covered and stable — these no-till farmers have been at the forefront of creating regenerative farming — a way of farming that restores natural resources, rather than depleting — or even sustaining them.

There are many other benefits of NoTill of course – we will feature some of those aspects in future episodes.  You can only […]

Share the Risk

2019-02-27T15:21:22-05:00February 27th, 2019|

If we want a different food system — one that is optimal for both people and the planet, we ALL have to share the risk it takes to get there. Consumers have the power💥 to create an incentive for food companies that are fighting hard for their attention— to support farmers who can heal the earth 🌎 for us all! Together, we can help farmers shift toward regenerative agriculture at a scale that can make a real difference.  

If we want to share the rewards of an agricultural system that uses less chemicals and stores carbon in the ground, we all have to share the risk that comes with making big changes to a small margin […]
