Designers of Paradise Podcast
Erik van Lennep is back at it, talking with people who are using their imagination and sweat to change the way we think about food, agriculture, and the world. Listen in...

Are we in the midst of a creativity crisis? How can we reclaim our Imaginative capacities? Could better care and feeding of our hippocampus help us move forward?  

How can we restore soil health, while locking away ever greater quantities of atmospheric CO2? Biochar, an ancient method rediscovered in Amazonian soils has led to a proliferation of research over the last few decades.

In Closing
We are very early in the process of defining what it means to build a regenerative society. While the terminology will continue to evolve, we're convinced the ideas are directionally correct. We are studying, testing, plotting, and building interest, support, and resources.

Thus this newsletter, which will come out every few weeks with information about RASA - narrating our work - along 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).
