Regeneration – an Earth Saving Evolution

Regeneration – an Earth
Saving Evolution

How biological farming builds healthier
soils, healthier plants, healthier animals
and certain hope in an uncertain world.

In a kind of army style ‘about-face’, society is increasingly turning away from the reductionist, extractive agriculture that rushed onto the world after WWII. Today people are, thankfully, realising that you cannot convert biodiverse natural systems into monocultures – into a factory floor environment – and expect success. With the soils that support all life on this planet getting rapidly eroded and diminished in critical organic matter, people are realising that farming is far more about biology than it is about chemistry, more about feeding the soil than feeding the plant, and are realising that our futures, our very survival, depends on our coming to grips with biological processes and learning to harness them.

I’ve just uploaded the new Regeneration – an Earth Saving Revolution DVD to our online store. This DVD examines the thoughts and work of some of the many individuals who are now leading the way forward in farming techniques that are simultaneously highly productive and entirely sustainable. It’s an inspiration-packed DVD that’s worth circulating to all.

Our survival now truly depends on how fast this kind of information can be made to pervade society at all levels, and how rapidly we can rebuild society to accommodate, integrate and harmonise with it.

Trailer to follow:


  1. We are running into a lot of “food-bobbles” around the world! Listen to this radio-interview with Lester Brown at NRK P2:

    NB! The volume starts at zero so you must turn on the volume yourself (above the green line with text “DU LYTTER PÅ ET OPPTAK”).

    The introduction is in Norwegian but soon turns to English.

  2. This is very interesting – I live in a rural area surrounded by broadacre farmers and I see the amount of fertiliser and stuff they pour on the soil to force the crops to produce.

    I would really love to get hold of a copy of this to loan it out to all those farmers around me as I think they are in the right frame of mind to listen. Their crops suffering with the dry weather and anything they can do to help would be looked at I am sure.

    I would be very happy to try to facilitate a presentation to the local farmers if someone from the PRI wants to come out here. I am located between Goondiwindi QLD and Moree NSW – which is a large wheat, chickpea, sorghum, barley, linseed and cotton growing area.

  3. Hamish,
    I have sent you some links of past work from the PRI.
    When you get a chance please give me a call about setting up a presentation for your local farmers and get a lot of media happening on the subject.

  4. I agree “our very survival, depends on our coming to grips with biological processes and learning to harness them.” and I’m interested in buying the DVD.

    I’m wondering if the DVD is centred on tropical/sub tropical solutions in the way that the forest gardening DVD was. I understand the principles translate to cool temperate forest gardening, but in that respect, the DVD had far less value to me than Martin Crawfords new “forest gardening” encyclopaedic book centred on a cool temperate zone.

    I understand soil building techniques, seeding N. fixing bacteria, mycorrhizal, heavy mulching with N. fixing and pioneer species etc. but the intro film hints at adding possibly specific biotic bacteria etc. is there enough information in the DVD for me to apply the techniques in a cool temperate zone?

    To put it into context, two DVD’s from your store is equivalent to a weeks income for my family, I have to be very careful where and how, I invest in educational resources.

    As an aside, I’m not sure if you’re aware, but there is no VAT charges on educational resources imported to the UK, it might be worth categorising the DVD’s books etc. as such to avoid people being stung by UK customs, which adds almost 20% to the cover price.
