Brandon Welch and Phil Taylor – Updates with Mad Capital on how to enable billions to flow to regen organic farmers

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!

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.
From Fiji to Slovakia and from Gabon to Scotland. There are very few people on the planet working on financing regeneration at a landscape level.
