Why Regenerative Agriculture?

October 21, 2013

 

There is a good deal of buzz around agriculture sustainability.

 

We need to ask the question: What is it that we wish to sustain?

 

I would suggest we cannot have a sustainable agriculture today.

 

We are too far down the hill.

 

We are realizing only a very small fraction of our capacity and the capacities our plants are capable of. Why would we be satisfied with mediocrity?

 

FIRST: We need to have a discussion about regenerating agricultural systems. Regenerating soil and plant health to achieve more of our true potential. Only when we have developed a regenerative model of agriculture, can we have a discussion about sustainability.

 

These radishes were produced utilizing a regenerative agriculture model: 

They were harvested 6 weeks after planting, weighed an average of 8 oz each, were the size of a softball, and were sweet and crisp all the way through.

 

We are routinely achieving only a fraction of our true potential.

 

This is why we discuss a regenerative agriculture.
