In this inspiring episode of the Regenerative Rising Podcast – Elevating Stories Activating Change, Nisha Mary Poulose, our Executive Director has a rich and engaging conversation with Finian Makepeace, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Kiss the Ground.
Finian is a thought leader and a visionary who has been at the forefront of the effort to mainstream regenerative ways of growing our food. Finian’s work embraces the interconnectedness of humanity and nature.
In this conversation, Finian and Nisha dive into critical aspects of the Regeneration movement that need to be considered at this stage. Finian shares his impactful experience at the Rally for Resilience that took place in Washington D.C. in early March, and discusses the importance of the Farm Bill, what it is, and what we are rallying for.
Finian and Nisha’s conversation provides an insightful look into the value of working with natural resilience, indigenous place-based knowledge systems, and the importance of bringing community back into the food system. They also discuss the role of kindness and inclusivity in creating momentum in the movement, and the need to shift our beliefs to make possible a future that is not just “sustainable” but regenerative.
Finian underscores the compounding nature of problems and solutions in the natural world, which can result in exponential negative or positive changes in land and ecosystems over time. He passionately advocates for holistic land management as a potent approach to facilitate meaningful change.
The episode concludes with exciting updates from both Kiss the Ground and Regenerative Rising and an invitation to engage.
