Are We All Blind Men With Respect to Regenerative Agriculture?

  • The CPG approach, where regenerative agriculture is a marketing label, and cannot be used independently of terms like “organic”.
  • The Permaculture/Regrarian approach to regenerative agriculture, which is best suited for small farms and homesteading. SymSoil is very familiar with this approach, as we have had 6 team members with Permaculture Design Certification.
  • The Holistic Management approach. At SymSoil, we are big fans of Alan Savory’s approach and the Savory Institute … but since we are not ranchers, we cheer from the sidelines.
  • The Living Systems Frameworks put forward by the Carol Sanford Institute and the Regenerative Business Alliance. This is one of the most intellectually satisfying approaches to Regenerative Agriculture.
  • The fifth approach where SymSoil fits — a focus on Soil Health and improving profitability for farmers. This approach to regenerative agriculture draws on inspiration from other lineages, but biological farming focuses on what works for growers — focusing on bottom line profits through increased soil health.
