I just finished reading this interview with Dr Richard Teague who is doing research about regenerative agriculture, specifically "AMP grazing management". It has plenty of interesting information, observations, and opinions.

Also, last week, I watched Kiss the Ground and found it to be quite inspirational. For those who don't know, there's also a Kiss the Ground book which was the inspiration for the movie.

Hello William

You said:
The film of the book Kiss the Ground is now on Netflix, well worth a watch.


I just finished watching this documentary. It was good, so many thanks for the recommendation. It was also refreshing to watch something about environmental issues that had a message of hope. I strongly recommend this film to anyone who's interested in sustainability. You don't need to be a farmer to enjoy it, or benefit from the information.



Also, many thanks to everyone else who has contributed links and suggestions.

What a fantastic response!

US-based food company General Mills plans to convert 1 million acres to regeneratively managed farmland by 2030. Here's a nice primer about regenerative agriculture that they recently sponsored in the Guardian.

I recently discovered this map showing regenerative agriculture projects around the world. Clicking on the pins shows a description of the specific project and links to more information.

YouTube has a decent number of videos about regenerative agriculture. Some are just the general concepts for non experts, but others are by farmers for farmers. Try some terms like, "regenerative agriculture", "regenerative farming", "regenerative grazing", "sustainable agriculture", "sustainable farming", "sustainable grazing".

I recommend this short 15 mins film about the work of Ernst Goetsch in Brazil - it's truly impactful and eye-opening, no matter if you have previous interest in agroforestry or not: https://youtu.be/gSPNRu4ZPvE

Hi - I think a great source of information on regenerative ag is the book "Biomimicry" by Janine Benyus and the Biomimicry Institute which you can join and even take classes for free I believe.
Another great resource stateside is The Land Institute, they are heavily focused on moving away from monoculture annual crops towards more polyculture / perennial crops. Ya know, as nature intended it to be...

Jessica Martin, you said:

I have seen quite a lot of information about regenerative grazing but less about regenerative cropping. It seems that the former is very successful in terms of commercial viability, soil health, animal health, ecology, and CO2 sequestration. Can anyone share any information about the efficacy of regenerative cropping?


I've been wondering the same thing. I did a quick search for academic papers looking at the efficacy of regenerative cropping but didn't find any. If anyone knows of any studies, it would be great if you would post them here.
