Amazing long form, round table conversation with Joel Salatin and Darren Doherty, recorded right before the CoVid lockdown. We get a real deep insight into what drives and concerns two amazing pioneers and innovators in agriculture and regenerative farming.

Joel Salatin is an outspoken advocate for free speech and choice in food and farmer relationships and transparency of production. An author of 12 eclectic books on farming, entrepreneurship, legal battles and spiritual ecological connection.  Joel's latest communications outreach is his ever relevant blog Musings From a Lunatic Farmer.  Joel is also the head of the highly acclaimed Polyface Farms and widely accepted as the most famous farmer of our time and a huge mentor to thousands of young and passionate new farmers. Also self described as a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. I have huge respect and affection for Joel as an elder, a friend and a God fearing farmer. 

Known as the master of process Darren Doherty has painstakingly developed an incredibly pragmatic and far reaching platform for total farm planning, the Regrarians Platform. With thousands of hours, ecological farm designs, implementations and successful students Darren’s innovative and incredible contribution to the regenerative farming movement is well established and most recently manifest in his long awaited book The Regrarians Handbook. When it comes to due diligence in farm planning and farming innovation Darren Doherty has become the undisputed last word.  I have a special respect and gratitude to Darren, as my first real teacher and connection into the world of regenerative farming and all the following evolutions.

12: Darren Doherty – Living With Fire & Regenerating Landscapes

Read more

On this episode I speak to Darren Doherty. Darren is one of the world’s most well-respected farm planners. He has developed a design system called the Regrarians Platform, which incorporates ideas and from existing frameworks with Darren’s own innovations. The platform was greatly influenced by people such as PA Yeomans, whose scale of permanence forms the basis of Darren’s framework. Darren’s approach also draws on Allan Savory’s work in holistic management and Bill Mollison and David Holmgren’s insights from permaculture.

Darren has worked around the world in many different kinds of climates and also has extensive experience regenerating landscapes in Australia.

Darren and his family have also produced an award-winning film called Polyfaces, which profiles Joel Salatin and his family on their innovative farm in Virginia. You can stream it at polyfaces.com.

I wanted to talk to Darren about his own history, and also get his thoughts on the bushfires in Australia, and how we can try to mitigate them in the future.

We don’t spend a lot of time specifically discussing the Regrarians Platform itself, so I encourage you to look up Darren’s lectures on YouTube, or go to regrarians.org to learn more about it.

At some points, we do get a little bit into the weeds, but even if you’re not familiar with land management or farming, I think you’ll still find Darren’s insights on those topics interesting.

1.11 Mastering The Art Of Process With Regrarians Founder Darren Doherty

Read more

A very open conversation with the master of process and productive, integrative land planning, Darren Doherty.

Darren Doherty and his family are the masterminds behind The online learning resource The Regrarians platform, along with The REX farm planning course, The Rap and the ROC international conventions. Darren is also the originator of carbon farming as a course, and is credited with popularising the international movement RegenAg, he is also the author of the comprehensive and developing Regrarians Handbook.

Darren's portfolio includes over 15000 graduates, and active involvement in the design and development of over 3000 broad acre projects over 6 continents (Their platform is especially popular in Latin America).  But more than Darren's numbers and achievements I realized that Darren brings something very unique and all his own into the space of ecological connection, intelligence, regeneration and farming.  A truly openminded yet highly pragmatic approach. Darren's not afraid to be an active critic of the weaknesses behind any system, and is equally respectful of the strengths of the same systems. Darren is an active supporter, and somewhat of a spotlight, for a host of true heroes, and their work, in this space globally. Darren heralds the growing acceptance of a pluralistic view towards ecologically harmonious production systems. 

We delve into a more personal side with Darren Doherty and his journey so far.  Covering his core values and beliefs behind the drive to serve more people more effectively with their own land.

 Keyline, holistic management, the mental climate and grandmas hands. It was really exciting to dive in to see what makes the man tick and have a laugh or two.   

I cant recommend Darren Doherty's work enough and there is a reason why he is the master of process.

Why forests are key to the future of agriculture, with Darren Doherty, co-author of the Regrarian’s Handbook: 142

Read more
The last time I caught up with Darren Doherty for this podcast was back in season two. We talked a lot about his background and entry into ecological agriculture and how that journey informed his development of the Regrarian’s platform and outlook on the potential of regenerative farming. I recently caught up with him again to investigate the new chapter of the Regrarian’s handbook which he and his team just released. Chapter 5 of the 10 in the book which are being relseased one by one in digital format on their website focuses on forests and all the configurations that they come in. Since I’ve covered many of the first few topics from the chapter in other episodes in this ongoing series on reforestation and agroforestry I wanted to get Darren’s take on specific management techniques in a commercially productive woody perennial system. This covers more than just trees and includes plants of that classification at nearly every level of a forest ecology such as bushes and understory crops.
In this interview we start by going over the three main techniques for managing established woody species which are pruning, thinning, and coppicing as well as the incredible amount of things you can accomplish if you understand how to use them effectively. From there we look into harvesting from all the different major types of yields and balancing the need to incorporate efficiency into your system while maintaining a healthy ecosystem that wants more diversity and organic patterning.
We also talk about how to mitigate the initial cost of establishing tree and perennial plants by using upcycled and salvaged materials to start sprouting trees quickly and cheaply right away. By the end Darren also touches on the importance of intervention in our landscapes to more effectively manage wildfires and fire prone areas.
Before we get started I’ll just point out that the interview starts really abruptly because I lost the beginning of the audio with the introductions and pleasantries. Try as I might after 3 season of producing this show I’m still a complete amatuer with audio software so forgive me for another awkward start to this session. The good news is that it all goes smoothly after the start. If any of you want hear more about Darren’s background and journey to become the world renowned regenerative farm designer and educator that he is, I highly recommend the first interview we did for this show back in season two. I’ve put a link to that show as well as all his other resources in the show notes for this episode at abundantedge.com

S2 Ep. 5 Regenerative Farm Design with Darren Doherty of Regrarians Ltd.

Read more

Darren Doherty is the worlds foremost farm designer and founder of the Regrarians platform and Regrarians LTD. In this episode, we dive into what got Darren started in farm design, what a truly regenerative farm is, and the challenges that farmers all around the world face as they attempt to restore carbon to the landscape.

In This Episode: >> How Darren developed the Regrarians platform and the original framework it is based off of >> Darren’s advice to new farmers and the key areas they should focus on >> How so much of farming is the climate that you are are in, and the climate of your mind is an important part of that >> Why Darren prefers the word 'team' over 'staff'

Quotes from the episode: “Looking through just 1 lens (biodynamic, organic, etc) is myopic, and today's farmers need to play with a full deck of cards” “Surround yourself with those a little further down the road than yourself, a community” “Know yourself better so that you can work with yourself” "Make your farming year boring to the point that you can focus on building the systems into every area of our operation” “Be excited about feedback, whether from other farmers or from your customers, its free advice!” “Your network of customers is your greatest allies in building your business, so often, they are experts in so many areas that you need help in”

Regenerative Agriculture with Darren Doherty

Read more

This BEST OF GFL episode is a replay of a previous episode.

Darren Doherty of Heenan Doherty and Regrarians joins me from Australia to talk about the Regrarian philosophy that he has put together and how it can be used to regenerate landscapes and farming enterprises.The system deals with everything from the work done on the land to how you can synergistically stack multiple enterprises in the same system, and ultimately how to market and distribute those products to the people that actually want them. The system emphasizes participating in all 4 legs of the farm income stool - production, processing, marketing, and distribution. This allows you to be a market price setter, not a price receiver.
