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 […]

Now there is . . . for our members.

Our roadmap gives you the best of our expertise based on real projects going to market now — plus allows you to learn from the first-movers in our network.

Together, we can scale up a way of doing business that restores rather than depletes people and the planet!

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 […]

Buy the Book!

 

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 […]
