Regenerative Agriculture and The Living Soil Handbook with Jesse Frost


The Living Soil Handbook with Jesse Frost.

Regenerative agriculture focuses on improving soil health by disturbing the soil as little as possible, keeping the ground covered as much as possible, and keeping the ground planted as much as possible. In this episode, farmer Jesse Frost of the No-Till Market Garden podcast walks us through these three tenets, how they can help farmers, and how researchers and growers can better connect.

Tune in to learn:

  • How we can better define tillage
  • Why farming is like a choose-your-own adventure
  • How these three tenets can help improve soil health
  • How researchers can better communicate their research
