    194 Hervé Dupied – Want to change the €387 billion EU CAP? Invest in the regen farmers who against all odds are successful

    A conversation with Hervé Dupied Bokx, who currently works on a farm in France and at a university for farmers and, most importantly, on changing the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). We talk about policies, the CAP, which spends most of the European budget on a not very regenerative way of farming, and more.

    What is needed to change one of the largest farming subsidy schemes in the world? What pathways and successful examples do we have of European policy change? This is a much more optimistic and practical interview than you might imagine. It is about how to gather the pioneers of the regenerative and agroecology movement who against all odds and subsidies build very successful food and agriculture companies. How do we empower them to replicate their success and how do we create a strong enough voice in Brussels to change the rules of the game?

    193 Fred Provenza - What should we learn from domesticated animals when it comes to food as medicine

    193 Fred Provenza - What should we learn from domesticated animals when it comes to food as medicine

    A conversation with Fred Provenza, professor emeritus of Behavioural Ecology in the Department of Wildland Resources at Utah State University, about domesticated animals, their ability to self-select medicine and food and figure out what they need in terms of energy, vitamins and phytonutrients. We also discuss what they can teach us about rediscovering our nutritional wisdom.

    This series is supported by the A Team Foundation, who support food and land projects that are ecologically, economically and socially conscious. They contribute to the wider movement that envisions a future where real food is produced by enlightened agriculture and access to it is equal. The A Team are looking to make more investments and grants in the space of bionutrients. You can find out more on ateamfoundation.org.

    Research shows that animals are perfectly able to feed themselves when they have the cultural background and intergenerational education plus the diversity in plants and feed they need. So, what does that teach us about human nutrition and its connection to healthy soils?

    It seems so idyllic, selling your apartment in London, quitting your well-paid job and starting farming. Farming isn’t easy, let alone profitably and ecologically sound.
    If Parc Carreg makes it through the winter, they are planning to dramatically change their business and scale their impact.

    How do we farm the oceans regeneratively? We all have heard of the massive issues with fishing and especially the industrial-scale extractive way. We are basically emptying the oceans. It sounds very much like the rest of the agriculture and food industry. So what can be done? Join us today in a deep dive into the world of regenerative aquaculture!

JFelzz ,

A finance program I can enjoy!

I am not in the field of finance, but I find this podcast incredibly illuminating and enjoyable. I love the insight into how we can bring the world of finance together with the world every generation, conservation, and climate medication and adaptation.I particularly appreciate that the host is not afraid to bring in considerationsThat are typically not spoken of in the world of finance, such asHow to protect the rights and welfare of the folks who live on the land, how to include economic development in landscape-level projects, and how to “right-size” the entire system of returns on capital investment.

Sanchul ,

A learning curve we all need to climb

Great guests, great questions, super informative.

DD Burlin ,

Informative

Pretty good podcast generally, and very good if you really want to think about how $$ can support regenerative ag. Sometimes the sound quality of the interviewees is not great, and I’d love to hear more on how these investments might actually return capital to investors. Exploring the details of financial models that have worked, and not worked, in a deeper way might move us all along that much quicker.
