A Farming Revolution Documentray Trailer

Regenerative Farming is an enormous topic to cover so we decided to break it down into more manageable pieces. This trailer is for the first episode of a three part documentary.

Soil and Seed is explained by regenerative experts. It links our soil with seed, root and plant health.

Regenerative farming has a beneficial impact on all of us through human health, environment, river systems and our economy.

Discussions the Media Don't Know About

Soil Security and Planetary Health Conference Dec 2018 (Sydney). Michael Jefferies asked Di and Ian Haggerty, a regenerative farming question to help us understand the importance of gut microbiome with regards to livestock grazing and how that relates to improving the soil health to grow crops and native species of grass. The discussion then moved to Dr Christo Miliotis who talked about the benefits of feeding cattle seaweed and the how Hummus should be the center of every farming operation. Patrick Holden explained what they took into account when trying to measure regenerative practices.

Lessons from Albrecht - Improving Nitrogen Management - Graeme Sait

Graeme Sait discussing Nitrogen and the tipping point that changed our farming system for the worse.

Nitrogen is the most mismanaged of all minerals. It is the most abundant mineral in the plant but when it is so often misused and abused, it becomes a liability. Discover how you can do it better. Visit us at www.nutri-tech.com.au

A conversation between Farming Revolution and a Regenerative Farmer

Cick on the green block below to open and read full conversation.

FR: How does a revolution begin?

FR: How does a revolution begin? Education and realisation of a population, that needs change, for a better future.

RF - Dissatisfaction leads to a willingness to force change.

FR: Do we have the power to force change? Is it not enough for education and realisation to revolutionise the current way of thinking.

RF: It may be, it will take a long time, remember that most of our population have no concern for where their nutrition comes from as long as there is enough. That is why those countries that are struggling to feed themselves are showing greater interest in regenerative practices.

FR: Interesting

RF: Only my view

FR: I think the majority of our population is well educated. What they lack is direction because they lack the truth.

RF: They are comfortable

FR: No, they aren’t comfortable. They are sick and marriages are failing. We all know this BUT don’t know which way to turn. So let’s create a revolution. Educate and lead by example.

RF - Healthy food produced by regenerative practices must be available at similar cost to the status quo.

FR: No more fear.

RF: Fear? Of?

FR: Fear of not doing, what we have always done. Fear of change. The survival of our economy is in serious jeopardy. We need a revolution.
No matter where we start, we always end up with fear.

RF: True. Fear of the unknown. Anxiety caused by worrying about tomorrow.

FR: What is the basic principle of fear?

RF: Worrying about things we can’t change.

FR: Losing everything and the unknown. The basic principle is losing.

RF: Perceived loss

FR: Perceived?

RF: Yes worry.

FR: Is this loss actual or perceived?

RF: Did what you fear losing actually belong to you in the first place?

FR: Ah that’s different.

RF: Or is time just supposed to move on. By letting go you can become free.

FR: OK so loss is tangible? What are we actually fearful of losing?

RF: That I will have to think about. We know it is real and can affect our emotions.

FR: Is it really real? If you lose your business, is that the same as if you lose your faith? These are 2 very different entities to lose.
Lets flip this. Can we regenerate our business? Can we believe again?

FR: Can we regenerate our business?

RF: Of course, the business belongs to the decisions made by people.

FR: Can we believe again?

RF: Of course, belief comes from within. It’s a state of mind.

FR: Excellent so in that case we aren’t fearful of loss. We are fearful of change. What is a revolution? Change on a massive scale.

RF: The power of a population to force change, to overthrow the oppressors. To fight a war you must first identify the true enemy.

FR: That’s a lot of fighting talk. Can a revolution happen intelligently? Who is the enemy? Perhaps it’s our fear of change?

RF: Risk takers don’t fear change. In their minds why would they fear something that may not happen?

FR: Is regenerative farming a risk? Is it more of a risk than industrial farming?

RF: Is there 100% certainty with any type of farming?

FR: To sum up, we are fearful of something that doesn’t exist and if it does exist we can reverse the loss if it does happen. So to be regenerative means to train our minds to resist fear of change, because that change may actually create profit instead of loss.
