    amazing documentary. crazy to see how in such a short time (3-5) years we can see the benefits. I love how they offer positive solutions rather than focusing on fear mongering. They should show this in schools.

    It’s absolutely astounding that humanity’s economic models place no value on ecosystems, what enables all the wealth.
    I have a question for you Bret regarding flash grazing and your thoughts on that method of land regeneration?

      Enter the regenerative economy… 🙂

      YES! It’s not the COW it’s the HOW. Time is the critical component to decertifying or restoring a landscape with grazing animals. See Module 9 for more!

        Awesome! I’m really looking forward to that! I live in a region in Southeastern Alberta, Canada called the ‘Special Areas’. The land received this designation after 20-some years of destructive farming practices stripped all the top soil (ca1900-1920). There was also two fires, one in the 20’s, and one the 30’s, that burnt fall through spring charring the entire root systems of the prairie grasses. Killed the land. It’s still very evident to this day. All this to say, people in this region are convinced this land and the natural grasses are not suitable for flash grazing. It’s tough changing the thinking of conventional ranchers/farmers. Glad I’ll be getting more insight with this course!

          It does sound like your landscape has become more brittle due to these events, making it a challenge for certain, but as many people have shown its the how not the cow. Timing might be extra critical, and erring on the side of less time even, for you area!

    At the end Geoff says that the problem is now beyond just regenerating our land one backyard at a time, it’s a global, large scale problem and we need to take responsibility as a species. And that we are adding 1 billion people to our planet every 12 years blew my mind. Such an inspiring documentary
