One of the bright opportunities for demonstrating and creating a regenerative economy is through agriculture and, specifically, through helping creative, motivated young people get involved in farming. However, access to land is a serious barrier.
We're trying to address this barrier though development of the "FarmShare Farmland Fund" (FFF) - a shared, social impact investment strategy to help regenerative farmers get access to land. The FFF is currently competing with a lot of other interesting projects for planning and development support. That's why we need your vote.
Please vote for the FarmShare Farmland Fund in the 100 Projects for the Climate competition. You'll need to do the free (reasonably painless) registration and then give it a "crush" -- 2 votes! (Go ahead, do it right now - we'll wait.)
You're back already? Thanks much!
"100 Projects for the Climate"
The FarmShare Farmland Fund is among about 600 other projects competing for 100 slots of support. Vote for FFF and then vote for more (voting closes on July 5 in the US). A few others we thought interesting include:
Researchers, farmers, chefs, policy makers, government officials, and students will gather in Sacramento, CA to talk food transparency, food tech, sustainable protein, infrastructure, and food business, and more.

We are very early in the process of defining what it means to build a regenerative economy. While the terminology will continue to evolve, we're convinced the ideas are directionally correct. Now we are studying, testing, plotting, and building interest, support, and resources.
Thus this newsletter, which will come out about weekly with brief observations and links to related materials exploring innovation and the regenerative economy. With effort, and a bit of luck, we hope support for these concepts becomes a wave sweeping the world! Check out the archive to see if this newsletter is right for you (or a friend).
