Grounded Growth Brand and Farm Members Work Together on Glyphosate Challenge

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.

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 […]

There’s a lot of talk ABOUT farmers transitioning to regenerative agriculture . . . but often, not enough talk FROM farmers sharing how they are doing it!

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.

Grounded Growth Members Share How Regenerative Farming Captures the Rain!

2019-08-07T12:44:40-04:00August 7th, 2019|

Did you know that regenerative agriculture actually increases the land’s ability to absorb water from a hard rain?  Sadly, this is not the case with conventional farming — which often leaves soils dried out and acting more like cement pavement.

Water infiltration –or, how fast water can get into the ground after a hard rain, is a key metric that helps identify if land is healthy.

Regenerative agriculture helps increase the land’s ability to capture the rain — even hard rains . . . which means less need for irrigation and less run off of fertilizer (natural or not) from the land and into rivers.

How?  All those year-round living roots, cover crops […]
