Why are we not paying farmers for quality? A long overdue interview with Dan Kittredge of the Bionutrient Food Association on their work of measuring of nutrients the connection to quality and taste.
An episode about the impact of regeneration on cooling the climate with Walter Jehne, forester and agricultural scientist specialising in soil microbial ecology of plant diseases, nutrition, and land regeneration.
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 interview with Emiliano Mroue, co founder of the WARC group, on how they are applying regenerative approaches with smallholder farmers in Ghana and Sierra Leone. And how they are raising capital through the innovative New African Farmers Bond to scale their work.
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.
A conversation with Zach Bush on how did a medical doctor ended up going very deep on soil and
discovering that almost all health issues can be traced back to how we treat our soils. Learn about the role of glysofate and why after seeing all this doom and gloom he actually has a lot of hope for the human species.
Chris Newman on busting the single family farm myth and why indigenous collectives are the way to go
Why does regenerative agriculture not scale beyond the often single family farm? What if we unleash the power of economies of scale specialization and actually build wealth within regenerative agriculture? What does inclusion mean within farming? Why does seed keepers and livestock breeders act as the key to our survival?
In the final episode of Transition Finance, Koen van Seijen with co-host and partner-in-crime Benedikt Bösel looks back on the past eight months and concludes the lessons discussed in previous episodes Transition Finance for Farmers series.
In this interview with Richard Focken, CEO of 12Tree, we explore the 4 year due diligence which lead to a German pension fund investing 200m into agroforestry.
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.
