Mariko Thorbecke, expert in Life Cycle Assessment, independent consultant bridging between corporate climate, net-zero commitments and regenerative agriculture, joins us to talk about the importance of fossil-free farming, the greenhouse gases presented into a single metric of CO2 equivalents and much more.

Adrian Ferrero on how giving farmers insights into the soil microbial community is key to regenerative agriculture
Adrian Ferrero is the co-founder of Biome Makers, a global AgTech company providing advanced technology for modeling soil functionality. They are on a mission to enhance the productivity of arable soils and recover soil health worldwide. Through their proprietary soil tech platform, BeCrop, they measure the biological quality of the soil and deliver agronomic insights to optimize farm operations and output.
A check in interview with Jim Mann of the Future Forest Company discussing the need to decarbonise our society a soon as possible and still remove about 10 giga tonne a year to keep most of the planet liveable. A deep dive into biochar and enhanced rock weathering.
Felipe Pasini, the co-founder of Life in Syntropy, joins us to discuss the astounding capabilities of systemic tree planting coupled with many other agroforestry systems and the role of syntropic agroforestry in gaining back the forests we once had.
An interview with Kelly Price, CEO and co-founder of Agreed Earth, discussing why we should focus on nitrogen as a gateway for regenerative practises. We also talk about the role of banks offering a great way to finance the transition as they are on the hook for the potentially bad credit of their farmers and the regular pressure to report on greenhouse gases.
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.
A conversation with Kellie Walters, CEO of VRM Biologik, about the different processes and programs they provide on a smaller scale, regional scale, national scale to the Food and Agriculture space in Australia, Malaysia, the USA, and China.
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.
John Arbuckle, founder of Singing Pastures, joins us to discuss their uncommon, revolutionary, and regenerative practices of growing pigs.
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.
