A sense of place, mirrored in how these projects are informed by the geographies, peoples, traditions, beliefs, institutions, and natural resources in which they operate.

An acknowledgement of interconnectedness and interdependency with all human communities and natural communities.

An understanding that wealth must be defined holistically and shared equitably; that it cannot be measured merely in financial terms but also in terms of social, cultural, and experiential wealth.

A nimbleness and adaptiveness; an ability to make course corrections in the face of unforeseen circumstances and events and to evolve organically to match underutilized assets with unmet needs.

PLACE HOLDER HEADLINE

Finding the sweet spot between generating sufficient financial wealth to meet one's basic needs while at the same time cultivating one's personal holistic wealth goals and that of the larger human and natural community is the delicate balancing act we must undertake if we want to do regenerative work in the world, individually and collectively. 

Hugh Kent, the hero of our story of King Grove Organic Farm,  wanted to model a different way of doing agriculture in Central Florida, going into debt to convert a conventional citrus farm to organic blueberry farming. He needed to make a living and repay his debts, but he wanted to do that while also doing "a decent job of balancing agriculture and land stewardship." "Organic ag doesn’t just mean you don’t use synthetic herbicides and fertilizers," he elaborates. "It means you manage your property under a comprehensive plan so you have a healthy natural community that exists on the fringe of what you are farming aggressively. "

Are you a regenerative storyteller?
