Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to reverse the damage we have done to our earth? Have you been told that going vegan is the only way to do so? When Taylor Collins bought 900 acres of factory-farmed land, it was completely barren, desolate, and degraded. But by working with nature’s cycles and reintroducing animals in order to loosen the soil and give back to the land, Taylor transformed his farm into a thriving ecosystem that supports higher crop yields, healthier soil and more nutritious food. In this episode, we talk about the power of connection, the “green narrative,” and what we as consumers can do to help our earth today. The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now – let’s dive in! 

 

HERE’S THE JUICE:

  • How factory farming works against nature’s principles to yield a higher output yet lower nutritional value

  • Taylor’s belief that humans aren’t inherently destructive but our values of “more more more” absolutely are

  • Why monocropping as a “solution” to global food insecurity is promoting a broken system

  • How regenerative farming mimics the cycles of nature and creates community 

  • Why we don’t need to stop eating meat but we need to rethink how we do it

  • The idea that healthy soil is the KEY to nutrient-rich foods and why topsoil is so critical

  • Why “Impossible” Meat isn’t actually a better or more sustainable solution than regeneratively farmed meat

  • Why our farmers are in crisis – both personally and financially 

  • How to vote with our dollars when it comes to food and support the growing community of regenerative farmers
