We Are the Re-Generation

-->
We are not Millennials
We are not Gen-Xers
We are not Baby Boomers, Gen Y, or Z.

We are the Re-generation,

Renewing the soil.
Rebuilding forests, watersheds and wetlands.
Regenerating prairies and lakes.
Redefining farming for perhaps the first time in generations 
and building perennial systems that will support our farm families for generations to come.
We save the soil and we save the farm…we save our place on this planet.

Who else is going to do this?  Cities?  Corporations?
All manufactured landscapes reduce the carrying capacity of our planet.
Show me a value of a street, building, or sidewalk that creates a net gain in the capacity of natural systems. Natural Capital is the real value of a place.
The ecological functions within its natural systems define a sites carrying capacity.

Land and water are the only resources for corrective measures; by raising their carrying capacity. Live in the Biotic World, surround yourself with living things and know the difference. Having us here should be a net gain to the planet and its future inhabitants.

Permaculture and Polyculture Consulting and Design
Getting to know your property, the plants you have and those you can grow, is a fulfilling endeavor. With most I am the steward of the land. I give them good soil biology and they do the rest. If I group them in cohesive plant communities, they respond with greater yields. If I encourage the micro-organisms (Fungus and bacteria) , the roots obsorb more nutrients making a pest and disease resistant plant. A stronger plant that gives us more organic food and takes less energy.
