How do we know when we are regenerating land?  Lindsay Dailey, executive director and co-founder of the Tribal Ecosystem Restoration Alliance in Lake County, shares the concepts inherent in “kincentric permaculture“.

The top strategies are regenerating (and preserving) soil and ecosystems. But how do we know if we are regenerating ecosystems?
