Regenerative Farming: a Special Cyanotype Project
From Farmer Jones Farm Market at The Chef's Garden: Wondering “What is regenerative farming, exactly?” In a nutshell, it involves using special techniques to create healthy soil in which to grow healthy crops that provide the maximum in flavor and nutrition for people who enjoy eating them. Those are just some of the benefits of regenerative farming. It also contributes to a healthy planet and can even come to the rescue with food shortages.
At a high level, regenerative farming involves planting multi-species cover crops and using them to enrich the soil. This allows us to have much less competition from weeds, which eliminates the need for chemicals, and builds healthy soil for healthy crops, healthy people, and a healthy planet.
Here's a sneak peek at the pieces featuring vegetables and cover crop plants from The Chef's Garden. The art was made using cyanotype photograms and traditional photography.
While these original pieces are in a traveling exhibit, archival prints of varying sizes will be available for purchase. 10% of all my art sales are donated to the Hunger Network.
Free information handouts about Regenerative Agriculture will be available.
