We completed our Environmental Outcome Verification for the Land to Market Certification last week. Every year we collect data on forage quality and vigor, soil exposure, plant and dung decomposition rates, plant and insect biodiversity, water and wind erosion, and more. We send that data to @savoryinstitute where they analyze and verify. We are so thankful and proud that our renewed certification shows that the land we manage is improving year after year.

Incredibly important that this years @rhs_chelseaflowershow is focused on our climate crisis and how to create beautiful, wild, positive solutions. There was the Resilience Garden featuring a diversity of species that would be more resistant to the pests that climate change will bring (*cough* permaculture!). The Duchess of Cambridge designed her own wild woodland garden (*cough* permaculture!) and the amazing @tomdixonstudio collaborated with @ikeatoday to create this amazing bridge garden with underground urban farm complete with aeroponics (by amazing @laurbanfarms ) and mushroom lab (OH MY GOD PERMACULTURE). So proud to be a part of this movement over a million strong globally that is redesigning systems in line with nature’s patterns, be it agriculture, business, government, commerce - amazing #permaculture principles: Earth care, People care, Fair share. #rhschelsea2019 #rhschelsea #gardening #veggie #regenerative #resilience #revolution #green #ourplanet #extinctionrebellion #standforsomething #london #chelsea #tomdixon #ikea #climatecrisis #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #mycelium at RHS Chelsea Flower Show SW1

By @hollyrose.eco Our society has been built on a bedrock of linear thinking which disconnects us from nature. Our decoupling from the #livingworld has dissolved our sense of meaning, breaking our understanding of natural order of things. ⁣ ⁣ #Sustainability is not black and white, leaving room for #greenwashing and misinformation which misguides our policies and production, often deepening the damage done. The beauty of simple b&w distinctions, offered by the umbrellas of #regeneration and degradation, would allow us to call a 'spade a spade' without confusion.⁣ ⁣ In the ' #SoilAdvocacy Training' I’m currently partaking in with @kisstheground , @finianmakepeace explained this concept perfectly: ⁣ ⁣ DEGENERATIVE MODEL⁣ The model we’ve built our society around is degenerative, allowing production and policy to leave the planet WORSE off for the fact that it’s occurred. Proliferating irreversible deterioration of our planet, and destabilising the lives of every living thing on it. ⁣ ⁣ SUSTAINABLE MODEL⁣ The model of sustainability is one which allows us to use and abuse without completely destroying nature, but it gives nothing back, it just takes. Sustainability is a logical reaction to the degenerative model, giving us the option to do less harm, while requiring continuous investment financially and energetically, in further exploitation... which isn't really sustainable in the long run. ⁣ ⁣ REGENERATIVE MODEL⁣ Regeneration is the model of reciprocity where production or policy leaves the planet BETTER off for the fact that it’s occurred. It restores and replaces more than it takes, creating a society which lives in symbiosis with the natural world. It is the BIGGEST BEACONS OF HOPE we have, as #regenerative models help reverse #globalheating and prevent #climatebreakdown , drawing carbon back down into the soil where it belongs. Letting life beget life as intended.⁣ ⁣ We are in the midst of a paradigm shift, and it is fundamental to our survival that the shifts in our society mirror nature’s cyclical systems. If we can guide these changes with transparency, reflection and honesty, I have no doubts we can heal ourselves and our planet.

#verticalforest • Repost @n_kuklakis • • Vertical Forest increases biodiversity. It helps to set up an urban ecosystem where a different kind of vegetation creates a vertical environment which can also be colonized by birds and insects, and therefore becomes both a magnet for and a symbol of the spontaneous re-colonization of the city by vegetation and by animal life. The creation of a number of Vertical Forests in the city can set up a network of environmental corridors which will give life to the main parks in the city, bringing together the green space of avenues and gardens and interweaving various spaces of spontaneous vegetation growth. • • #boscoverticale #stefanoboeri #milano #architecture #livingarchitecture #biological #habitat #biodiversity #nature #city #trees #urbanforestry #reverseclimatechange #regenerative #development #demineralization at Bosco Verticale

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is performed on the eyelids, both upper and lower. Surgery aims to improve the shape of the upper eyelid, bottom eyelid, or both; eliminate fatty deposits, wrinkles, excess skin on the upper eyelids as a result of the aging process; also tighten the skin of the lower eyelids so that the eyes look more refreshed and rejuvenated. Aesthetic surgery on the eyelids can be performed on adults. To improve the shape of eyelids due to age factors, generally performed on patients over 30-40 years. If it is due to congenital factors, surgery is generally is reserved for adulthood. Blepharoplasty procedures are fairly popular in Asia, including Indonesia. #plasticsurgery #vrc #vinskiregenerativecentre #blepharoplasty #vinskitower #wocpm #perfectbeauty #antiaging #aesthetic #medicine #preventive #regenerative at Vinski Regenerative Centre

Not long ago, the world met climate activist @gretathunberg. Her example inspired a movement of 20 million youth who took to the streets in protest of well, leaders who arenʻt listening. Our youth see a global climate that has already changed - within our natural environments, social spaces and economics - and ask us to boldly respond. Their powerful action not only reminded us of the need to listen with better intent... but to whom and what we can be listening for. In modern times, we forget to cherish the insight, ingenuity and resilience of our youth; voices, at times, marginalized as not valuable. We believe in calling upon the youth to build solutions now. Our youngest team at the Purple Prize are a group of middle school students from Maui and the eldest team being well into their 60s. It is truly a joy to see the intergenerational exchange of ideas happening.

This is Bruno and Ze, two great contributors to the reforestation of Portugal. Making friends with such inspiring people is one the great perks of being involved in something much larger than yourself. like, what can possibly motivate people to be learning and smiling late at night and hard at work? the teaching in syntropic farming is that this is only to be expected when people are, like the rest of Life, humbly fulfilling their function within Earth's much larger being. there is a profound sense of fulfilment, belonging and unification with the bigger picture of existence. #syntropicfarming #sintropia #agrofloresta #syntropicagroforestry #foodforestry #nature #agroforestry #regeneration #permaculture #agroecology #ecology #stewardship #earth #restoration #syntropy #soil #ecosystem #biodiversity #regenerative #forest #reforest #foodforest #evolution #water #community #earthcare #thespiritofsyntropy

Reflections, mirrors, images ... they are all a perception ... often based on some form of distortion. Water, liquid, has an energy, movement of its own ... a reflection will come back vibrating, shifting, rippling and flowing in the shape or image the water allows. A mirror or glass reflects back in opposite of what you see, with its own distortion, flaws and imperfections. If you look at yourself in a cracked mirror or window, the "reality" of the broken perspective can be more profound to the psyche. Images such a painting are all from the view of the artist retaining his or her own idea or perspective of who or what a person looks like ... and the same can be true about all forms of photography. We say we have captured a person or a soul, but it was an instant in time, a perception, a moment now perceived by our own ideas of what you are seeing.⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ You cannot see yourself, as a "whole", "physical" being without a reflection ... I wonder sometimes, if this is by design and serves to disrupt what was never meant to remain the same? If you never saw your reflection, is it possible you looked nothing like you "thought" you did? ⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ This is one reason I have chosen to focus on Circular or Regenerative processes, practices and mindsets rather than sustainability. I see all the good intention, light and movement behind the idea of sustainability, and yet the name itself means to stay the same, "maintain at the same rate or level". Nothing stays as it was, all things grow, all things change, all things shift...the intention for me, for Brooke is to live with the mindset to strive to do no harm, to always be reflecting and seeing the potential, the possibilities...letting go of what no longer serves, allowing expansion and abundance to thrive in all things...in and around me.⠀⠀ ⁣⁣⁣ #meetbrooke #essence #brookesessence #myessence #brandphilosophy #philosophy #storybrooke #visualstoryteller #inspiredby #beauty #reflections #empowerment #selfreflection #selflove #muchness #enoughness #authenticallyyou #perfectlyimperfect#womanempowerment #womenempowerment #women #femaleempowerment #circularity #slowfashion #regenerative #expansion #abundance #growth at Charleston, SC

“As an active older adult with multiple joint replacements it’s important for me to get a good nights sleep.  I recently finished a two week natural building workshop which required long days of physical labor. Each night I took 2 ONDA CBD capsules after work to help with any inflammation and muscle soreness that I had from the work day. I woke up each morning ready to begin the next day without the soreness I usually have and each night I was able to sleep through the entire night which I normally can’t do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve always been extremely active as both a long distance runner (87 marathons) and a tennis instructor. I wish this product would have been available when I was doing all those activities instead of relying on Aleve and other over-the-counter products.

Score three for regenerative environments and all of its inhabitants! . . This weekend was chocked full of soooo many good things I thought my heart would explode from my chest. My next door neighbor wanted some of my native plants, so I spent Saturday morning digging some up and planting them for her. She then questioned me about the kind of organic weed killer was I using as she has 4 gallons of Roundup in the garage that she will no longer be using! She’s known that I hate Round Up and that I run an organic yard, she always used it anyway, but was cool enough to avoid spraying our shared fence, which I appreciated. To see her do an about face on the Round- Up and want natives was straight euphoric for me. I almost pinched myself to make sure that I wasn’t dreaming! . Illustration isn’t in my wheelhouse, as one can tell —— but THIS ugly drawing is bringing a fistful of beauty into a new neighborhood for a young 21 yr old excited to regenerate her yard! After asking me to help her design the yard, this beginning sketch was started— and then, I realized that it was ven better than I thought as she lives in a different city than me, so that means my neighborhood transformation is spreading. WOOT - a win for the environment. . I’m supposed to be getting some plants ready to sell, but this is my first year I don’t have that many — so I gave them away for free - I’m in the hole - so be it. I’m happy about it. . . . #iamthechange #regenerative #ohionativeplants #pollinators #vibratehigher #spring #artless #Illustration #helpothers #plants #nativeplants #goodnews #mylife #sharpieart #suckydrawing #plans #life #biodiversity

Last year we did a big 7 page spread in @bust_magazine with @leonejuice all about #upcycled and #zerowaste fashion, and now this July we are bringing the party to @superchiefgalleryny on July 13 for a big Zero Waste event! There will be a free pile clothing + accessory swap, workshops and classes about how to live a zero waste lifestyle, a sober dance party (zero wasted! 😆) by @dirtyfinger, vendors and interactive art + education! 🌍 We are currently looking for people to teach workshops on compost, diy mending, making your own beauty products, reusable menstrual products, making your own yogurt, urban gardening, or whatever else might fit under the theme of ZERO WASTE. These events are a time to come share knowledge and skills so we may all improve our habits little by little. 🦋 @pvssypowerhouse founder @corinneloperfido will be leading a talk on her journey of not buying things or creating trash for a year and sharing her #plasticfree tips for breaking up with our disposable culture. 🌳 If you’d like to teach, vend, show art or film, volunteer, or help in any way, please email pussypowerhouse@protonmail.com to get involved. Please comment with any #zerowaste #sustainable #upcycled #regenerative #holistic #plasticfreeliving #reusable #ethical #local #holistic companies (large and small, women owned ideal!) who we might get involved in this project. 🚯 Curious to learn more about Zero Waste and start your journey (or take another step!) check out @zerowastehome @zerowastechef @trashisfortossers @packagefreeshop @lifewithoutplastic @precyclenyc @_wastelandrebel_ @bezerowastegirl at Superchief Gallery NY

“We are also learning that a healthy balance of microbes in our soil is essential to the health of the planet. In fact, microbes actually help create the fertile soil necessary to grow healthy food which, of course, has enormous implications for our survival as a species. One of the most important features of Regenerative Agriculture is working with soil microbiology to reclaim soil fertility where it has been degraded (70% worldwide) to grow the healthiest, most nutritious food possible, and—believe it or not—fight climate change! The microbes play a role in that, too.” Link in bio.

We dropped in @fermeterrepartagee almost unexpectedly (recommended by BeetBox) and were immediately welcomed into their loving farming community. Pierre-Olivier, one of the four owners of the farming co-op, shared with us his passion for food sovereignty and peasant agroecology, which he says are inseparable: “agroecology is the tool and food sovereignty is the goal”. The farm was started in 1886 by the Chiasson family, who still own and work the farm and have 5th, 6th, and 7th generation family members currently living on the land. We talked to Jean Eudes, 5th gen Chiasson and experienced farmer, who described the farm’s transformation from brussel sprouts to the current day diverse production of organic vegetables, as well as cattle, hogs, broilers, and hens, all of which are fed grain that is grown right on the farm! As soon as we arrived we were invited to attend an outdoor concert on the farm performed by @piperandcarson and @moonfruitsmusic (both amazing, please check them out!) and to a big family/community potluck, and given a bed for the night. In awe of the hospitality in Rogersville, we were consistently given the response “that’s just the way it is here.” We learned so much here we can’t post it all! at Rogersville, New Brunswick

As we designed the inaugural Grounded Summit, it was our top priority to be a regenerative event, and to be ever conscious of our environmental impact. @bankofamerica made a donation to offset our carbon footprint, meals created by @sorenwesth506 and his @506food506 team were locally foraged and focused on showing ways we can more thoughtfully create and consume food, @ranacreek’s beautiful green installations featured around 1500 trees and plants that we are donating to forever homes, @camelbak donated water bottles so there was zero need for single-use plastic...even in the little details we made effort to support regeneration. All name tags were printed on plantable seed paper - you can see our Executive Director’s in the photo, swipe to see it one week later beginning to sprout. It’s a powerful reminder, in a way, of why we do what we do. When we plant things, give them the water and light to grow, beautiful things happen. That’s what we aim to do at Grounded Summit: bring together diverse voices and unique perspectives to plant the seeds that will take root and change the trajectory of our climate. These seeds will, over time, grow to build a thriving planet. Save the date for Grounded Summit 2020. We can’t wait to see you there.

This weeks #regenerativechallenge is to get to know the plants in your yard. What are their names? Are they native? Are they nitrogen fixing plants? Do they attract native insects/other wildlife? Do they require a lot of sun? A lot of water? Are they edible? Or medicinal? Why were they planted? For beauty, food, etc? All of these questions are important, and important for you to know the answers to. This week I will share some more about why these questions are important. #permaculture #permaculturefoodforest #lavender #regenerative #regenerativelives #regenerativeliving #regenerativelifestyle

#repost @n_kuklakis • Vertical Forest is a model for a sustainable residential building, a project for metropolitan reforestation contributing to the regeneration of the environment and urban biodiversity without the implication of expanding the city upon the territory. It is a model of vertical densification of nature within the city that operates in relation to policies for reforestation and naturalization of large urban and metropolitan borders. The first example of the Vertical Forest consisting of two residential towers of 110 and 76 m height, was realized in the centre of Milan, on the edge of the Isola neighborhood, hosting 800 trees (each measuring 3, 6 or 9 meters), 4,500 shrubs and 15,000 plants from a wide range of shrubs and floral plants distributed according to the sun exposure of the facade. On flat land, each Vertical Forest equals, in amount of trees, an area of 20,000 square meters of forest. In terms of urban densification it is the equivalent of an area of a single family dwelling of nearly 75,000 sq.m. The vegetal system of the Vertical Forest contributes to the construction of a microclimate, produces humidity, absorbs CO2 and dust particles and produces oxygen. • • #boscoverticale #stefanoboeri #milano #architecture #livingarchitecture #biological #habitat #biodiversity #nature #city #trees #urbanforestry #reverseclimatechange #regenerative #development #demineralization at Bosco Verticale

#repost @n_kuklakis#Trees are a key element in understanding #verticalforest architectural projects and garden systems. In #Milan the choice of the types of trees was made to fit their positioning on the facades and by height, and it took two years to finalize it, alongside a group of botanists. The plants used in this project will be grown specifically for this purpose and will be pre-cultivated. Over this period these plants can slowly get used to the conditions they will find on the building. • Vertical Forest is a landmark in the city which is able to depict new kinds of variable landscapes changing their look over seasons, depending on the types of plants involved. The Vertical Forests will offer a changing view of the metropolitan city below. • • #boscoverticale #stefanoboeri #milano #architecture #livingarchitecture #biological #habitat #biodiversity #nature #city #trees #urbanforestry #reverseclimatechange #regenerative #development #demineralization at Bosco Verticale

A 15 minute drive from the heart of the country’s capital city lies @beetbox_coop, cooperatively owned and run by three young farmers who strive for sustainable farming: sustainable for the land, and sustainable for the people working it. David, one of the owners, talked to us about the need for stable farming jobs, and Beetbox is designed to pay its employees fair and year-round wages (so cool!). The greenhouse is bursting with vegetables waiting to go in the ground once warmer, drier weather finally arrives. These veggies will provide the fresh contents of the seasonal CSA (community supported agriculture) boxes that community members pre-purchase and can pick up at the farm. The CSA model gives small farms financial security and certainty throughout the season, and due to the urban location of Beetbox’s 110 acres, the farmers can still meet their consumers and develop community relationships. at Ottawa, Ontario
