    302 Jonas Steinfeld – The many shades of green of agroforestry systems

    A conversation with Jonas Steinfeld, a researcher and consultant based in Brazil specialising in agroforestry systems, about the many different levels of complexity in agroforestry. Does complexity lead to more or less work? Does complexity lead to more or less carbon storage, and why? And are complex agroforestry systems more profitable? The scientific world has been quite clear up until now that adding more complexity to agriculture, especially with perennials like trees, almost always make...

    301 Yasmine Cathell on nutrient quality bio stimulants, microalgae and other random but world changing regen trivia

    A check-in conversation with Yasmine Cathell in which we discuss everything from why we should focus on solutions that work for all farmers, not just regen organic, to the reduction of bio stimulants on farm or off farm, microalgae, nutrient density, and quality. Why does it all start in the soil? And we finish up with a masterclass on smelling soil and other random but world-changing regen trivia.This is part of a series of interviews unpacking our recent video course.

    300 Koen van Seijen's journey into regenerative food and agriculture and introducing the Generation-Re investment syndicate

    Koen van Seijen settles into the guest chair for a special 300th episode celebration and is interviewed by Naeem Lakhani and Antony Yousefian. It's fascinating how a simple curiosity about food led down the rabbit hole into the rich ecosystem of soil, carbon and regenerative agriculture. Starting from a coffee with Tony Lovell of SLM Partners, we recall moments and conversations that pivoted our path from a general interest in food to a passionate advocate for regenerative agricultural practi...

    299 Cameron Frayling - Forget biodiversity credits (for now). Regen ag farm land funds and regulation are driving the biodiversity sector

    A check in conversation with Cameron Frayling, CEO of Pivotal Earth, about biodiversity, one of the most important sets of things we should track and measure, and yet it is super difficult and mostly hasn’t been done until now at scale at all. The data is simply not there, so what do we do? With Cameron we check in with one of the leading companies trying to bring technology to this space and make biodiversity measured at scale and cost-effective.We learn a lot about the current tracking devi...

    298 Dan Kittredge – Local, regenerative and organic have no connection to nutrient density, soil health does

    A long-overdue check-in interview with Dan Kittredge, founder of the Bionutrient Food Association. We discuss their involvement in the revolutionary beef study, all the research they have been doing and where they have been showing absolutely no connection between the labels, local, organic, regenerative, farmer's market, etc., and nutrient density.What has been shown is a correlation between soil health and nutrient density. All the claims about regenerative agriculture that leads to more nu...

    297 Chris Henggeler - Standing on the shoulders of giants (Savory, Ingham, Provenza) and managing over 77000 hectares in remote Australia

    A conversation with Chris Henggeler, a second-generation high-density, low-duration herder using herds for land management. From one of the most remote places in Australia, we explore big myths like many animals damage the land, to a huge question: can we actually put the new megafauna to work? Farms need to get smaller, and ranches need to get bigger. If you want to retire in security, you have a vested interest in healthy landscapes.How do we invest as if our grandchildren mattered? How do ...

Fantastic resource

Just a fantastic resource for anyone working in the sector. The segments on transition finance for Regen were filled with good ideas.

The best climate - regenerative ag podcast!

I've been a loyal listener of Koen's podcast for years now, but it just hit me—I've never left a review. It’s an absolute gem in the world of sustainable investing. With insightful discussions, expert guests, and a deep dive into the transformative potential of regenerative practices, each episode offers invaluable knowledge for investors seeking to make a positive impact while generating returns.

His passion for the subject shines through, making each episode both informative and inspiring. He’s not afraid to ask the questions we are all asking inside our heads.

Whether you're a seasoned investor or new to the concept of regenerative agriculture, this podcast is a must-listen for anyone looking to align their investments with their values and contribute to a healthier planet.

Koen’s podcast has been a constant companion during my afternoon strolls in the woods to my favorite “thinking spot” - a small lake. I'm convinced it's fueled investment in the regenerative space.

Ecosystem builders like Koen are the unsung heroes in the impact space. They do the heavy lifting that often goes unacknowledged, yet we wouldn't all be here without them.

So on behalf of all of us in the regenerative community: thank you Koen for sticking with it and to Grantham Foundation for funding ecosystem building podcasts such as this one! Wherever I see leveraged investments and neglected climate solutions, I see Grantham.

Better financing needed to have better ag

Perspectives I don’t find anywhere else. Thoughtful questions. Interesting speakers. John Kempf episode is especially good.
