REV On Air: Hope in Regenerative Farming with Jesse Smith of White Buffalo Land Trust
In this episode we are talking to Jesse Smith, Director of Land Stewardship at White Buffalo Land Trust. As an organisation, White Buffalo Land Trust practices, promotes, and develops systems of regenerative agriculture for local, regional, and global impact. Jesse shares with us his passion for agricultural system design and how they are developing Jalama Canyon Ranch in Santa Barbara County to become a model for regenerative agriculture world wide.
“Human ingenuity is one of the most undervalued potential energy sources that we actually can consider, which is interesting because it resides within us. We have had a heavy hand in putting ourselves in a sticky situation, but I think that if we can really attune to natural cycles and systems and recognize ourselves as part of nature, not separate from it, and bringing a new mindset to it then there’s so much potential of what we can do.”
Jesse is the Director of Land Stewardship and is guiding the development of the Jalama Canyon Ranch as well as working with local and global leaders to broaden and deepen the positive impact of regenerative agriculture on our soil, our health, and our communities. His passion and expertise in agricultural system design and community engagement are a cornerstone of our strategy to achieve a systemic shift towards a regenerative food economy and ecology.
