Regenerative Agriculture Practices
Soil health determines plant health, animal health, human health, ecosystem health, and even the health of the economy – we can’t say this enough!
Unfortunately, most of our farming practices damage the health of the soil over time and create serious problems for humanity. In order to sort out our issues, we must admit to our own human faults…publicly. Soil, we’ve wronged you by utilizing A LOT of degenerative agricultural processes.
In order to achieve our goal of regeneration, we need to take a close, comparative look at current regenerative and degenerative agricultural practices currently happening around the world. We’ll start with the truth behind those nice clean rows of tilled soil.
We often see tilled soil and think, “that is just what farming is, it actually looks kinda nice in those neat rows” and we may have been told that there are benefits to tilling like decreasing weeds or loosening the soil or increasing aeration. However, there are serious downsides to tillage that wreak havoc on the entire soil ecosystem, reduce its carbon storage, and its ability to regenerate itself.
We haven’t even scratched the surface. But, there is hope when we go beyond degeneration, beyond sustainability, and look through a new lens of regeneration.
