It is hard to believe this was only 12 months! As the year ends we would like to share with you our main accomplishments and discoveries of this 2020.
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.
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.
We can’t answer food’s most basic question: what is in it. Unless we can measure nutrient density on the farm, regen ag will never deliver its promise. These are some of the questions we tackle in this check in interview with Greg Shewmaker co founder of Teak Origin.
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.
Robyn O’Brien of rePlant Capital is the third guest of the Transition Finance for Farmers Series. A discussion on the crucial role of farmers and investments.
Mark Campanale and Matt McLuckie on the hidden risks in the food and ag system any investor should know
An interesting conversation with Mark Campanale and Matt McLuckie of Planet Tracker, a non-profit financial think tank focused on planetary limits and financial markets e.g. fisheries, water and textiles.
Koen van Seijen and Benedikt Bösel are the co-hosts of this special series dedicated to Transition Finance in regenerative agriculture and food.
In this series Koen is joined by Benedikt Bösel, owner of the Gut&Bösel farm (http://www.gutundboesel.org) and former Venture Capitalist with a focus on environmental technologies and AgTech startups. Follow them on their journey to find out what are the key principles of transition finance for regenerative farmers.
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?
