Ethan Roland Soloviev joins me to share one of his current projects to define the phrase Regenerative Agriculture in an open way, via the website Regenerative Agriculture Definition. This site takes an Open Source / Creative Commons approach to defining a phrase that, much like our beloved Permaculture, can be a bit hard to pin down based on who you are talking to and their experiences with the term and in the act of doing the work.
Read the Regenerative Agriculture Definition White Paper (PDF). This served as my first foray into this modern approach to discuss what it means to practice Regenerative Agriculture. I don’t necessarily feel any closer to it now than I did when we started, but commend Ethan et al. on addressing meaning within a larger community.
In the resource section, rather than just link to each of the companies and organizations Ethan mentioned doing good work, I chose to link to the various vision, mission, and philosophical statements underpinning what they do. Let’s focus on their ideas, not just the products.
