We are approaching the end of 2021 with over 165.000 streams, 40 interviews, many new stories and people all working to regenerate soils at (more) scale.
On December 15th, 2021 we run a AMA Webinar with Koen van Seijean, an opportunity to come together and ask Koen and everyone else on the call their burning questions regarding building a regenerative food system.
On November 15th, 2021 we run a QA Webinar with Mandy Ellerton and David LeZaks of Croatan Institute, hosted by Koen van Seijen. A deep dive in their new paper “Regenerative Agriculture and Human Health Nexus: Insights from Field to Body” that explores the evidence connecting agriculture practices to human health outcomes.
A check in interview with another co-founder of Trailhead Capital Tripp Wall. Hear from Tripp how provenance is key, time kills food, regenerative soil amendments are off ramps from extractive agriculture and, finally, how we need to be able to go long on investments.
Guaranteeing access to sufficient nutrients to the entire global population, which is set to reach 10 billion by 2050, will force a radical rethinking of the current agri-food system. The industrial, linear model of farming has created diversity-free systems that require enormous quantities of pesticides and chemical fertilisers to keep yields high. Cropping and farming practices, with their intensive use of inputs, have led to the exhaustion and erosion of soil and natural systems. The long-term health and resilience of our ecosystem are in danger. However, this trend can and must be reversed.
A conversation with Tobias Joos, founder of Crowd Container, a new model for direct and 100% transparent exchange of sustainably produced agricultural goods in Switzerland.
John Arbuckle, founder of Singing Pastures, joins us to discuss their uncommon, revolutionary, and regenerative practices of growing pigs.
Dan Barber, great flavour, health benefits and healthy ecosystems can only come from healthy soils not a lab
Dan Barber, chef and co-owner of Blue Hill both in NY and Stone Barn and co-founder of Row 7 Seed Company, joins us to talk about the role of seeds and chefs in regeneration, and where to invest in order to win while helping the environment.
Annette Mueller on managing over 2000 hectares biodynamically and selling everything directly to the end consumer for more than 40 years
Fattoria La Vialla di Gianni, Antonio e Bandino Lo Franco has managed hectares of land using organic farming since 1978. With La Vialla’s communication manager Annette Mueller we discuss why we need to invest more money in the fertility and biodiversity of the soil and also the estate’s success in direct-to-consumer distribution.
