    Inhaltsangabe

    Gabe Brown didn’t set out to change the world when he first started working alongside his father-in-law on the family farm in North Dakota. But as a series of weather-related crop disasters put Brown and his wife, Shelly, in desperate financial straits, they started making bold changes to their farm. 

    Brown - in an effort to simply survive - began experimenting with new practices he’d learned about from reading and talking with innovative researchers and ranchers. As he and his family struggled to keep the farm viable, they found themselves on an amazing journey into a new type of farming: regenerative agriculture. Brown dropped the use of most of the herbicides, insecticides, and synthetic fertilizers that are a standard part of conventional agriculture. He switched to no-till planting, started planting diverse cover crops mixes, and changed his grazing practices. In doing so, Brown transformed a degraded farm ecosystem into one full of life - starting with the soil and working his way up, one plant and one animal at a time. 

    In Dirt to Soil, Gabe Brown tells the story of that amazing journey and offers a wealth of innovative solutions to our most pressing and complex contemporary agricultural challenge - restoring the soil. The Brown’s Ranch model, developed over 20 years of experimentation and refinement, focuses on regenerating resources by continuously enhancing the living biology in the soil. 

    Using regenerative agricultural principles, Brown’s 5,000-acre ranch has grown several inches of new topsoil in only 20 years! The key is how we think, Brown says. In the industrial agricultural model, all thoughts are focused on killing things. But that mind-set was also killing diversity, soil, and profit, Brown realized. Now, he channels his creative thinking toward how he can get more life on the land - more plants, animals, and beneficial insects. 

    “The greatest roadblock to solving a problem,” Brown says, “is the human mind."

    If only more would listen and do

    Follow nature. Do not pretend to know better than a four billion years old maestro.
    What more ought to be said?
    Mankind is destroying its own resources and only needed 10.000 years to get to this point. The crown of creation - I beg to differ.
    We are the destroyer of the creation. No doubt about it. And then there are a few realizing it and actually finding their way "back", but all those "smart" guys won't listen. Sounds familiar? Is a well known mannerism. Same with "healthy food" - forty years of wrong predictions and "science". If they had only followed the science and signs, but where would have been the money in that?

    Every page dense in wonderful useful information

    Enjoyed every minute. Loaded with a systematic and experience rich advice. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in making regenerative economics Real (not just a presentation or strategy document)
