The Earth's Ecology is at a Crossroads
The Ecological Crises Confronting Us Today
In an attempt to meet rising global demand, industrial agricultural practices have devastated topsoil and soil microbiology.
To combat loss of soil nutrition and protect agro-business firms, the industrial model uses chemical pesticides to artificially create bounty, producing tasteless unhealthy food.
The rise of the modern global industrial age has proliferated the rate of climate change around the world.
The deterioration of the quality of food has led to increased rates of chronic diseases for many citizens of the Western world, especially children.
In the USA, the over reliance on pharmaceuticals to treat illness and the private health care system costs $4 trillion per year.
Many young people find themselves overburdened by student debt and insufficient job markets for both college and high school graduates.
The growing wealth gap between the elites and everyone else has produced a shrinking middle class and feeds a cultural divide between rural and urban.
A reexamination of what it means to be human, an American, and what it means to survive on Earth today, has spurred individual introspection, cultural upheaval, and environmental activism.
The CREEED Theory of Change
Revitalized Local Agriculture
The Integral agricultural model, the ReGenerative Agricultural System, brings together permaculture insights, intensive European row techniques, the insights of ReGenerative Science (that helped end the African famines of the 80’s), and a generation of learning from American approaches to low impact, deep organic farming. The result is an evolving model that produces nutrient-rich food and offers an economic distribution system that makes that food affordable to a wider audience.
