This is where all the magic happens. Literally. We’re calling it Hogwarts. Okay, okay, maybe it’s not literally magical like a school for witchcraft and wizardry, but it’s pretty darn close…
One way that regenerative agriculture can reverse climate change* is through raising livestock on silvopasture. Silvopasture = forest + pasture. But what if the pasture doesn’t have any good soil and the forest doesn’t have anything green left when spring comes?
*YES, you heard me right, you can help reverse climate change by grilling a Wild Harmony pork burger.
To make an easy gluten-free pork burger, just combine ground pork,
old fashioned oats, salt, cumin, garlic powder, chili powder, onion powder,
and ground pork, and throw the patties on the grill!
In the past couple of winters, we’ve seen erosion happen and pigs digging super deep holes. During the winter the grass wasn’t recovering because it was too cold and in the spring it got super wet and the soil and nutrients would wash away.
We would end up with this environment that isn’t really ideal. Bare soil, lots of ruts all over the place. Grass seedlings don’t stand a chance to take root because the nutrients are gone! We started thinking, ‘How do we fix this? What are the other options?’
If instead of losing soil to erosion, what if we could build soil through composting, letting the pigs essentially build us a big compost pile, and dig through it, and turn it? Then instead of losing soil, we would actually be creating it...
