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 […]

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 […]
