"Unveiling the Story of Regenerative Ag and How to Tell Your Own"
As producers and consumers are both intentionally polarized by impact media, the time is now to tell the story of regenerative agriculture. Like crafting a fine piece of art, your story can and should be used to mobilize for the betterment of all, for justice, peace, and environmental stewardship of the Earth.
Join the Soil Regen webinar this week to hear from Nicol Ragland, director, producer, and photographer with an emphasis on cause-driven storytelling as seen by the docuseries Farmers Footprint. Nicol embodies honest, artful, and relationship-centered long-term photographic and film exploration diving into humanity's relationship to culture and the wild. She finds culture to be an accumulation of ideas where we explore ways of exploring. This infinite play is where she’s found the best terrain to collaborate, listen carefully, and recognize expansion due to authoring and co-authoring. Photographs and films have become her best challenge to create imagery that does not cause dispute but rather reconfigure who we are. She intends an aesthetic meant to push boundaries and bridge differences.
Born in Oklahoma, and valued dual citizenship there and in Colorado as a child. Nicol worked in the craft of imagery for 18 years in Los Angeles to then return back to red-dirt roots, creating a home on Oklahoma’s Ragland Ranch. Nicol has a BA in Environmental Science from the University of Denver as well as a BA in Photography from the Colorado Institute of Art. http://www.nicolragland.com/
Accompanying Nicol, we will hear from Timothy Kercheville a full-time farmer and agriculture consultant who discovers cooperative and regenerative agricultural solutions for both urban and rural settings. He contracts as a farmer/consultant with private properties, organizations, and public institutions in Kentucky and Tennessee to build new farms, improve existing farm systems, transform lawns to gardens, or serve as a farm manager. All the systems he designs are biodiverse and food-productive and combine agriculture with education.
