Description

A course by  Investing in Regenerative Agriculture and Food.

What is this course?

A series of currently 17 short videos (10-15min) plus downloadable pdf slides with lessons learned after recording over 100+ interviews with investors, fund managers, farmers, scientists since 2016, always asking the question:

‘how to put money to work in regenerating soils at scale and growing a lot of tasty food while doing so?’

We have been following the regenerative agriculture and food space since 2011 and we recorded since 2016 more than 100 hours of audio. We think it is time to share our lessons learned! :)

Why invest in regenerative agriculture and food? (plus the risks of investing in conventional extractive agriculture)

How to invest in regenerative agriculture and food?

Price! Pay what you think it’s worth?!

We invite you to pay what you think it’s worth (inspired by Charles Eisenstein and Frederic Laloux).

Why?

Because we all have different life circumstances. We trust that when we give/create value, we will also receive in abundance. Plus it is impossible for us to know how much my work is worth to you.

How does it work?

If you have the means, think what this course is worth to you (which could be $0 for now) and pay that! Just to be clear, this doesn’t mean that this work is ‘free’!

Still confused?

Sure! If you need context, we would sell this to a financial institution or an investor for at least $399-$599. (Please don’t see this as a push to pay that, we are aware that our audience has very different means.)

P.S. I like the thought that at this very moment, no one knows what the course will mean to you, and what you will want to give back for it.
