This might be the most important episode ever. Make more money, make food taste better, oh and save the world. If 10% more of the worlds farms would practice regenerative agriculture, it literally would save the world.
This episode explores the evolution of American farming and why the industry has become so problematic. This pod is for the history books and the history buffs. We discuss everything from the dust bowl, to World War 2 and modern day farming.
A few guidelines to regenerative agriculture:
DO NOT PLOW OR TIL
Plant and crop diversity
keep roots in the ground year round
Multi Paddock Grazing
No need to have extreme yields
No pesticides and herbicides or any synthetics
