IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™...
… you’ll learn why regenerative methods for taking care of soil and raising animals provide a solution that creates food sovereignty, improves human health, and helps reverse climate change.
Previous episodes of this podcast featured regenerative farming and soil conservation topics. Dave Asprey keeps the conversation going because when you know what’s happening and what companies are doing about this problem, you can be informed and take action to support regeneration efforts in your own way.
Robby Sansom, co-founder and CEO of Force of Nature, joins the show to talk about the new developments igniting real change.
His roots run deep in the natural food community, caring for soil and caring for animals. He spent much of the last decade studying regenerative agriculture at ranches all over the world. Through this education, he helped found the Austin, Texas-based regeneratively sourced meat company, Force of Nature. The company’s building brand new global supply chains of grass-fed and regeneratively managed livestock. Force of Nature works in partnership with land stewards, ranchers and farmers committed to creating a positive return on the planet.
There’s an undeniable sense of urgency about the state of soil and its ability to provide enough food for a growing population. Over more than a hundred years of conventional farming and ranching depleted land and disrupted natural ecosystems. These harms (have and continue to) adversely affect animal and human health. Force of Nature focuses on repair and regeneration—in their own operations and by educating farmers and ranchers from homesteaders to big corporations.
In spring 2022, Force of Nature hosted a What Good Shall I Do? event about learning and leading with regenerative intent. This educational forum hosted several dozen speakers from soil scientists to leaders in the regenerative movement to individual farmers and ranchers. By providing information, resources and tools, conventional farmers and ranchers can make the switch to regenerative methods. And farmers and ranchers who already use regenerative methods can improve and have even more impact.
You can get involved, too! In this episode, Robby talks about the true cost of meat and gives tips on what to look for in your own local grocery and how you can support regenerative agriculture and ranching in a way that aligns with your own values. Every small step toward change contributes to a larger movement.
