What is Forest Ranch Regenerative?
The Forest Ranch brings to mind an ecosystem. Think of a flat cattle ranch superimposed over a vibrant hillside forest. It’s a concept of regeneration through inclusion and community rather than isolation. Imagine the turkey in the forest where there is tree-cover, living soil, and nearby water. Insects pollinate, fungus connects the trees in a beautiful network and a high-yield, healthy system is realized.
We HAVE to change the way we are growing, moving, and purchasing food. Food is the one thing that connects us all and as a primary need, is driven by volume and used as a control mechanism for people. It’s also where a majority of our carbon emissions, extinction, and pollution come into play.
Regenerative Agriculture is the next step in sustainability. If sustainable is to maintain a status quo, Regenerative is the act of replenishing the health and vitality of the planet THROUGH choices we make in the way we live and especially in the way we produce the things we need.
The Forest Ranch is a journey from a societal mindset of agriculture, value, and productivity to a reframed picture of sustainability, regeneration, growth, and a quest for harmony.
About Allen Clements
I’m Allen Clements, the Forest Rancher. I gave myself this name even though I live on a street in a town with a modest backyard just like so many people. But I think so much bigger than this small plot of land. We need a model that is not us and them, homes and farms, cities and countryside but something that is so much more interconnected, interchangeable and nuanced.
I hold certifications in Biodynamic Farming, Forest Garden Design, Teaching Forestry to Youth and Assessing Plant Diseases, Health and Problems. I’m also a filmmaker and have been for over twenty years. I use this skill to present ideas to a world that is increasingly digital and video oriented by telling stories or regeneration on my YouTube Channel.
My mission is to increase the resiliency and regenerative capabilities of the world through the power of our innumerable and mighty “consumers.” First, we need to educate ourselves so we can make the best possible choices. We need to have conversations and build community. If we do these things. Lasting change will come. I hope you find that and a little more here at the Forest Ranch.
