Bees are a reflection of us because they live in social environments. We need bees to pollinate our food not just to feed us NOW but to create seeds that will be the food of our FUTURE.
Seeds are the most important part of life! Cherish them and store them for the next generation. The re-generation!
Food that is grown regeneratively has been harvested from living soil. This means that the minerals from the soil have been taken up by the plant roots via the microbes in the soil.
There are thousands of herbs that play an important part in restoring our health as well as the health of our soil.
A sign that things are not going so well. Bare ground needs to be covered at all times. There are several regenerative techniques to regenerate this type of land.
Plants that get attacked by insects or disease are plants that need to be cleaned up. They are not healthy and give off signals to scavenger insects that they need to be eaten, therefore joining the food web.
Flowers are great to encourage pollinating insects of all varieties but certain varieties of flowers can also be eaten.
Natures way to balance her soil and keep the ground covered and protected.
Go back to ancient civilisations and they understood the importance of a healthy gut microbiome.
All life requires water and to have it on your property creates a whole new ecosystem. Regenerated land slows water down and allows infiltration to rehydrate your soil.
Work becomes fun when it's done together. Healthy mineral dense food is grown with love.
Regenerative farming is about an entire systems approach, using nature to help build soil and pest resilience. Organic is a no chemical approach with a mindset that may not necessarily take into effect the entire ecological system.
Regenerative farming is about looking at the whole system. Being open minded and thinking outside the box if you want to succeed. Taking a leaf out of Mother Nature's book and understanding the simplistic complexity she uses.
Food that is grown in a living soil with microbes that are active, gives the crops the ability to uptake the minerals in the soil. If the biology isn't present then the plants can't absorb what they need to be healthy.
A healthy soil needs humus. Humus is built over time by plant roots, photosynthesis and the presence of carbon in the soil. Carbon, once in the soil, acts like a sponge, soaking up the heavy downpours of rain and significantly helps to prevent erosion and runoff. Flooding and wind erosion will always happen because this planet is always evolving and moving. However, building a soil with high levels of carbon creates an incredibly strong foundation for our environment so that she can regenerate.
