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 […]

3 Projects Bringing Regenerative Agriculture to Market

2019-09-27T12:16:13-04:00September 27th, 2019|

We’ve been steadily assembling the relationships, tools and people to build regenerative supply chains.  Building a new, value-added market is not easy — it requires a lot of trust-building and change management.  This is why we can’t share the details of much of what we work on in our members-only platform.

But we now have 3 projects that are far enough along that we can provide an overview to folks that might be interested in joining us.  These three projects put on display our vision, strategy and process for building a regenerative food system.

We will share an overview of our projects at our meeting this Monday in Oakland, CA co-located with the […]

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 […]

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.
