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 […]

How Can Regenerative Help Create Food that Restores People & the Planet?

Download Our Free Guide Designed to Help Consumers Understand Regenerative!

Regenerative agriculture.  We talk a lot about it on our site, but there are still many people who don’t know what it is.  You might be one of them?

What you probably DO know is that you are often being misled from marketing claims about natural, sustainable or organic food that seem to provide what you are looking for — but often, do not.

To help you cut through the confusing maze of “natural food” marketing and give you an insider’s eye for knowing what’s what, we have created a new membership option — our Regenerative Consumer Circle.

We also created a white paper to talk through […]

Transitioning to Regenerative Agriculture: A Farmer’s Story

2019-12-18T15:49:02-05:00December 18th, 2019|

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! 

Big thanks to our friends at The Modern Acre podcast (members of Grounded Growth!) for the nice interview they did with another one of our amazing farmers from Canada, Derek Axten. 

Click the button below to listen to Derek’s story — which includes how he got into regenerative, what’s worked and challenges he’s faced along the way.

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 […]

Meet the Regenerative Consumer

2019-06-25T18:23:07-04:00June 25th, 2019|

Despite a growing amount of coverage, the term “regenerative agriculture,” is not well-known to consumers . . . yet.
Still, there are many reasons to believe that as consumers get to know about regenerative agriculture, they will love it.  We know this because this way of growing ingredients actually delivers on almost all the things that consumers say they want in a food system.  But more than that, it delivers on a deeper desire to return to valuing authentic relationships in an age of so much hype.
To see the alignment between what regenerative agriculture offers and what consumers want, consider what the regenerative consumer will be:
Much like the land that grows our food, consumers yearn to […]

You Can Expand Regenerative Agriculture RIGHT NOW — and It’s Super Easy

2018-09-21T19:10:00-04:00September 19th, 2018|

More and more people are getting excited about all the great things regenerative agriculture can do.  Our case study demonstrates that together consumers, businesses and farmers can expand regenerative farming practices on the land right now!

As a reminder, regenerative agriculture is a way of farming that builds up soil health.  It provides a path to mitigate climate change by drawing down a greenhouse gas from the air and storing it as beneficial carbon in the ground.  These farming practices build robust microbiomes underground — making a farm more resilient.  The result: farmers are able to maintain or increase yields over time using fewer chemicals.  It is a farming system that also creates […]
