We've all done it at some point in our life - taken the shortcut that led to an unexpected detour, opted for the "easy solution" that turned into an unavoidable problem, or created a band-aid fix that turned an urgent challenge into an outright crisis. Regardless of how we came to our biggest "oops," regenerative and holistic design is one definite way we learn from our mistakes and help others not to make them again.
This is where Julian's story began. Julian Loren started his environmental career off by building giant Band-Aid solutions to solve urgent problems. What he found was that there is no Band-Aid solution, but there are ways to regeneratively design our economy and systems.
Come dive into Julian's podcast episode. We'll explore systems design, how we might look at it more holistically, what implications it has on our future, and more importantly how we can help our youth tackle systems change.

When taking on a new adventure you are bound to bump into a crisis of some sort. Stefan Sobkowiak tells us "Don't waste a good crisis!" There is a perfect opportunity for growth and the ability to move beyond the conventional and into a whole new regenerative world.
Join us this week as Stefan shares his early adventures in starting a permaculture orchard. It's a true hero's journey as he moves away from just about everything he ever knew and moves into something completely new - farming beyond organic.
He's definitely created something amazing along the way, but it wasn't without a couple of bumps in the road and maybe even a few off-trail adventures. You can see how far he's come by visiting Stefan's website at Miracle.farm. You can also learn from and follow all his amazing adventures on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
Hey regen friends! We have another great interview this week with Milt McGiffen. He shares his story with us on how he worked to understand what this organic effect really is. As regenerative and permaculture folks we get it and are even helping the rest of the world move beyond organic, but we had to start somewhere when it came to understanding soil health and why we shouldn't just nuke everything with chemical inputs. Milt's story dives into a bit of the research that has happened over the years to get us to the point we are now.
Milt is a university researcher and educator at UCR. His focus is to help those in the agriculture industry and especially those working to find regenerative solutions. If you have questions or ways you'd like to weave his research with your work reach out to Milt at [email protected]. He's a very approachable guy and a huge advocate for regenpreneurs around the world.
This week we have Brian Von Herzen on the podcast! It's been a pleasure to work with Brian on a couple of small projects including this episode and I have to say he is a gem in the regenerative movement. He's been doing some amazing work in the world of marine permaculture and this week we'll be exploring his journey in creating and deploying an amazing permaculture system that is regenerating our world's kelp forests and eco-systems.
Another great week on the Seeds of Tao podcast. We have Don Huber's episode this week and we are talking about his lifelong research in crop health and nutrition. Don has been a scientist, researcher, and educator in plant pathology for over 55 years. With an amazing career in the space, he has been able to give much to the regenerative community in his work and we're grateful to have him on the podcast today to share his story and perspective.
We are back from a month-long break from the podcast. This was the first break we've taken from our weekly podcast episodes and it was a much-needed one. Emily and I got to have a small trip to our Montana property, we took some time to reevaluate our direction with Seeds of Tao podcast, and we will have some exciting news to announce in the coming months as we share more about the direction our regenpreneur learning platform is going.
Now that I've gotten that small update out of the way, I'd like to direct you to the 2021 Climate Leadership Summit we had at the end of April. I wanted to do a world report on the summit so that regenpreneurs and the larger regenerative movement could pull some helpful lessons from it and gain a better understanding of what our global leaders are focusing in on as we collectively work to tackle the SDG's in a regenerative way. Hope you enjoy! Let's continue the conversation in the Pando Academy Commons.
You know those moments when you are out in nature and whatever has been ailing you has suddenly been swept away by what Jeffry Vos calls the natureverse? It's a beautiful thing and it is so real that you experience it every single day if you allow it into your life. This is the main theme of the story Jeffry shares with us today. In fact, nature is more than a healer it can refine us into better versions of ourselves. Jeff shares how his consistent connection with nature, the practice of permaculture principles in his life, and the hard work of homesteading has changed and refined his talents and has become his way to personally develop himself.
As you listen to the episode and get to know Jeffry, you can reach out to him by email or on the Seeds of Tao Slack channel.
There is no business like regenerative business! It seems like we are finding a pattern here on the Seeds of Tao Podcast and we're changing the narrative for what it means to build businesses and be an entrepreneur.
Ethan Wright is one of those regenpreneurs changing the narrative and showing us what it means to create a business and satisfy the needs of not only the market, but our people, planet, and future. In Ethan's story, we'll talk about the businesses he's started and helped to start and how they fulfill gaps in regeneration. How he goes about his entrepreneurial endeavors is a helpful reminder for all regenpreneurs as we identify needs and create products and services that fulfill those needs in a holistic way.
If you're wanting to know more about what Ethan's up to and get in touch with him he's asked that you connect with him on LinkedIn. Hope you enjoy the episode and don't forget to continue the conversation in the Pando Academy Commons Slack...

Hey regenpreneur friends... Have you ever reached burnout with your work? I never thought it would be possible when doing purpose-driven work, but it can happen even when you're doing work that you're passionate about. Today we have an amazing guest that dives deep with us and takes us all on a journey of reflection. I guess I can only speak for myself, but I definitely recognized the moments in my life where I wasn't living my authentic self and had reached burnout.
