  1. Field Day at Paicines Ranch Mimicking Nature

    Integrating Livestock into Cropping Systems

    With Gabe Brown, Ray Archuleta and David Johnson

    We are excited to host a field day on our historic Paicines Ranch, which encompasses 7,600 acres of rangeland, vineyards and row crops on Tues. January 23, 2018. Participants will have the opportunity to see regenerative practices on farm and learn about the overarching frameworks and core principles from top leaders in the field.

    We will starts with an introductory overview of the new regenerative agriculture movement, followed by presentations about the underlying science on soil health and whole system thinking. We’ll demonstrate how to put these principles into practice –including the production of specialty compost and the use of high-species- diversity cover crops, and holistic planned grazing to improve farm productivity, soil function and carbon carrying capacity.

  4. Regenerative Agriculture—Farming Methods That Can Reverse Climate Change

    From our friends at

    Regenerative agriculture harnesses the relationships between plants and soil microbes to pull excess carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and store it in plants and soils where it is a useful nutrient for farmers.

    You may have noticed that we’ve been talking about regenerative agriculture a lot lately, especially its amazing potential to reverse climate change and bring numerous benefits to farmers, consumers, and local environments.

    Today, we’re focusing on the how of regenerative agriculture—we’ll dive more into the specific practices that farmers and gardeners alike can use to not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also draw down excess carbon while bringing about many other ecosystem benefits at the farm and landscape level. Many of these practices have been around for ages; they’re proven to improve resiliency to ever increasing weather extremes and enhance long-term farmland values, which makes them good for the farmer and good for the planet.
