What we learned in 2020 on nutrition, inequality, ownership, health, agroforestry, profitability, soil
As the year ends we share what we have learned in 2020 thanks to Investing in Regenerative Agriculture and Food from over 40 long interviews, many webinars and a complete series on Transition Finance for Farmers.
An episode with Frank Wooten, CEO and founder of Vence, a reinvented livestock production that centers in virtual fencing and autonomous animal control. Vence’s mission is to lower the price and to increase the availability of sustainable animal protein around the world.
This deep dive into nutrient density on how Pierre Weill, co-founder of the non-profit organization Bleu-Blanc-Coeur, created a 2b euro a year certification program, paying farmers more for better quality food. Starting with the simple (but very complex) concept: farmers hold the key to our health, if we don’t change the practices in the field we need to find chemical medicines.
Russ Cosner, co-founder of StandardSoil and BlueNest Beef, talks about the potential of soil carbon in regenerative agriculture, the role of regenerative entrepreneurs and the science behind livestock farming.
A conversation with Fabio Sakamoto, co-founder of Rizoma Agro, about bringing down the costs of producing regenerative organic grains and pulses and how to scale this to impact more acres.
Felipe Villela is the co-founder of reNature, company working to regenerate nature through agroforestry together with corporates.
Catherine Tubb of RethinkX is the co-author of the “Rethinking Food & Agriculture” report. Will precision fermentation really be 100 times more land efficient, produce 10-25 times more feedstock and be 10 times more water efficient? And what does it do with nutrient density and healthcare?
Matteo Mazzola, regenerative farmer and owner, together with his partner Paola Archetti, is running the Iside Farm in Sulzano, on the Iseo Lake.
