    Beyond Regeneration: Connecting our Souls to the Soil with Daniel Firth Griffith

    Beyond Regeneration: Connecting our Souls to the Soil with Daniel Firth Griffith

    In this episode we interviewed Daniel Griffith of the Robinia Institute. In today’s climate, regenerative agriculture is a popular phrase being used in the farming and health industries, as well as marketing campaigns. Daniel unpacks what the label “regenerative agriculture” means and why the conversation and practices surrounding this trendy label might need to be reframed. He posits that regenerative agriculture does not actually get to the root cause of our problems since it simply continues the cycle of mechanization and reductionism. As Daniel so beautifully says: “First we need to heal the soul before healing the soil.” Tune in for a philosophical conversation about the land, our connection to it, agriculture, community, and the hope for a better future. Allan Savory calls Daniel the “poet laureate of holistic management,” and he did a fantastic job of painting a vivid picture of the landscape with his words.

Practical and Informative!

I’ve been listening to this podcast for over a year now. It has helped me immensely as I transitioned myself and my family from a vegan diet. The series on what to eat for meal times set me up for success as we navigated the transition. Cori and Christine share excellent tips and tricks for nourishing your family while also staying within your means. They are both down to Earth and have a great sense of humor! I appreciate the wealth of information shared in these enjoyable conversations. My family and I are now thriving!

Janine is a humble expert!

Both episodes are not only packed with amazing information, but also with interesting stories. The interviewers ask great questions which prompts Janine to weave her vast knowledge with her heartfelt stories around her journey. Her passion for organ meats shines through in a way that will leave you inspired and curious.
