A conversation with Tim Coates, co-founder of Oxbury Bank, the UK’s only specialist agricultural bank, about flood risk mitigation, water quality, water cycle restoration, selling flood mitigation to institutional investors and much more.
Ties van der Hoeven – The regreening project we can’t afford not to do, restoring the water and weather systems in the Med, starting with fish
A conversation with Ties van der Hoeven, founder and creative director of The Weather Makers, about restoring the water cycles in the Mediterranean, the effect of water vapour on cooling the planet, our tunnel vision focussed on carbon, and much more.
A conversation with Henry Rowlands, CEO of Soil in Formation (SIF) about how to measure a holistic set of parameters related to soil risks and soil health accurately, in-situ and in real time by using electrochemical sensors and more. Soil in Formation (SIF) is on the verge of making it possible to measure a holistic set of parameters related to soil risks and soil health accurately, in-situ and in real-time by using electrochemical sensors that are set to enable the auditable measurement of soil carbon and soil health.
A conversation with Marcel de Berg, founder of Green Water Cools, about the cooling potential of green water, avoiding regrets and focusing a bit of our attention and resources on restoring water cycles, biodiversity, and more.
After 25.000 hours of research Marcel concluded that the cooling potential of green water fare out paces the less heating of CO2 reductions. So why don’t we switch on this massive airco cooler? What is holding back the systems investors, the investors pension funds, insurance companies, etc. that rely on a thriving global system which seems to be under threat?
A check-in interview with Russ Conser of Standard Soil about Blue Nest Beef, Standard Soil, where the industry is going, the science of regeneration, seeing the soil and plants breathe, measuring carbon and water flows and why Russ is still very optimistic about the potential of regeneration.
Lauren Tucker is back on the podcast to talk about the first year of the ReNourish Studio, what she has learned and what she is doing differently with the second cohort, but also what she is observing in the space through her work in the almond project and, of course, the direction of the regeneration industry.
A wide-ranging conversation with Angus McIntosh, a regenerative ag pioneer in South Africa, about markets, carbon, nutrient density, cobalt, chemical-based fertilizer, large distribution, and so much more. He is the founder of the Farmer Angus brand.
What we learned in 2022 about nutrient density in food, farmers’ philosophy, enabling technologies and satellites and redesigning products
Wow! What a year it has been. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any crazier we find ourselves in a war in Europe, crazy energy and food prices and extreme high inflation rates in general.
In an ideal world farms applying regenerative practises are more resilient, but as we saw with the story of Josh Heyneke, founder of Parc Carreg, farms can get into trouble very quickly when input prices spike (in this case organic grain from Ukraine to feed the ducks). It seems like Josh and his partner Abigail will make it through the winter and are building hard on their more resilient future, which will include climate neutral eggs!
With this post we wrap up the year and we look forward to regenerating more soils and many more hectares in 2023 and beyond!
Johannes Scheibe on using carbon credits to transition from understocked and overgrazed to zero input grazing
A conversation with Johannes Scheibe, founder of Ruumi, a satellite grazing app, about financing land regeneration and how Ruumi works with farmers and companies to create the conditions for a better future.
A special interview with Arizona Muse, Greenpeace Oceans Ambassador, founder of the charity Dirt, model and advisory board member of the US Biodynamic Demeter Alliance.
