Generations of herbalists have emphasized the quality of wild vs. cultivated plants. This bias was not based on plant constituency, which is often higher in cultivated species, but rather on the energetics of wild plants. There is a spirit, and energy inherent in wild things, both fauna and flora, that is apparent to anybody who has visited the last remaining wilderness areas of this country.

This type of agriculture focuses on regenerative practices, and quite frankly has the potential to reverse the effects of climate change. How you ask? .. Well in day-to-day practices the goal is to create a farm system that is minimally dependent on imported materials, and instead meets its needs from the living dynamics of the farm itself. It is the biodiversity of the farm, organized so that the waste of one part of the farm becomes the energy for another. This results in an increase in the farm’s capacity for self-renewal and ultimately makes the farm more sustainable. Without the use of harsh chemicals and a minimal / no till approach this soil is much more alive than even that of large scale conventional organic farming. It allows for a thriving environment conducive to the growth and propagation of millions of micro organisms, a soil that is capable of a great deal of water retention, and the ability to sequester carbon from our atmosphere.
