We are Resiliencia Audiovisual, a filming team made up of six professionals very committed to the work of filming and editing documentaries on issues related to the Soil, the Soul and Society. We are focusing on promoting Regenerative Agriculture because it brings together simple, common-sense methodologies that are grounded in ancient knowledge, nature's cycles and the most recent scientific discoveries regarding how ecosystems, and especially soils, actually function. This body of knowledge is a bridge into the future, a train we as a species cannot afford to miss.

Regeneremos la Tierra
The Resiliencia Audiovisual team is filming, editing and will spread the RegenAG Iberica courses by means of online film capsules ("Visiones Regeneradoras" - "Regenerative Visions") that are nutritious, shareable and downloadable, in order to reach all those interested and contribute to the transition of soils and communities.
Main featuresInternationally renowned experts in the different methodologies that Regenerative Agriculture encompasses are visiting various locations in the Basque Country, Navarre, Catalonia, Madrid and Andalusia to carry out intensive trainings between April 2012 and April 2013. Places on these courses are limited and not everyone can invest the time or money necessary to attend. However, these informations are essential to whoever works the land, whoever is thinking of doing so, whoever is assessing them and whoever wishes to support the work of farmers, foresters and pastoralists. For this reason, we wish to film all the Regenerative Agriculture courses and edit them into good-quality informative materials, at last in Spanish.
This material will be available to a potentially unlimited amount of people, which we hope will be decisive in spreading such positive and revolutionary practices, a real change from the present paradigm of land use and food production.
The keys points in Regenerative Agriculture:
- A deep understanding of the biology of the soil and the physiology of plants, working to encourage them, which means, for a start, not turning the soil by tilling (an idea that totally goes against the present agricultural paradigm, both conventional and organic)
- Appropriate and intensive management of farm animals, imitating the patterns of wild herds in order to recover animal services and close nutrient cycles, increasing the fertility of the soil and thus of all productive systems
- Reducing production costs and efforts, while freeing farmers from having to depend on agro-industry and subsidies as farms become profitable
- Increasing the quality of life of those who produce food, recovering food sovereignty and local links, as well as promoting the good health and awareness of consumers in general
Regenerative Agriculture (RegenAG) is a combination of very logical techniques that have proven they work: Keyline Design, Holistic Management and Planned Grazing, Polymarketing, Pasture Cropping, Biofertilizers and Chromatography. RegenAG follows the principles of Permaculture and Transition Towns, with the firm idea that farming is the very core of every food, social, economic, labour and environmental system.
Darren Doherty, international promoter of Regenerativa Agriculture, together with the RegenAG Iberica team and other regional teams, have organized a 2012-2013 tour of Spain, bringing in a number os his colleagues who are experts in various techniques in order to spread these powerful yet accessible tools for change in this part of the world, for the benefit of soils and people.
How the programme stands at present:
The first two courses of 2012 ("Holistic Management" with Kirk Gadzia and "Biofertilizers and Chromatography" with Eugenio Gras), have been carried out and filmed in Malaga and the Basque Country, with almost 200 people participating (many of whom work in various agricultural, social and research organizations), and the interest generated is huge.
The next courses that are planned and which will be filmed by the team of Resiliencia Audiovisual are:
• 7-10 Nov 2012: “Keyline” in the Basque Country with Eugenio Gras (www.mashumus) and Jesús Ruiz (www.lineaclave.org). For more info on the course: www.regenagiberica.com
• 16-18 Nov 2012: “Biofertilizers and Chromatography” at El Prat de Llobregat, Catalonia, with Eugenio Gras. For more info on this course: www.regenagbarcelona.com
• Marzo 2013: “Bases de la Agricultura Regenerativa” y “Línea Clave”
con Darren Doherty en varios puntos de la Península
• Abril 2013: “Gestión Holística" y "Gestión Holística Avanzada: Planes de Pastoreo y
Planes Financieros” en el País Vasco con Kirk Gadzia
• Primavera 2013: “Granjas Polifacéticas” en Málaga con Joel Salatin
Why this is importantAnyone interested in healthy soil and quality food should be able to access this information, also in Spanish.
The courses themselves are aimed at farmers, foresters, pastoralists, landscape designers, agents of change, local and regional administrations, technicians (agronomists, topographers, engineers, vets, architects...), trainers, public or private land managers and the general public.
This series called "Regenerative Agriculture 2012-13: Soils and Communities in Transition" is attracting a lot of attention the organizations and locations involved, and the its intention is to embrace and promote local identities, cultures, foods and farming systems in each region. Also, with the emphasis that RegenAG places on business innovation and in young trained people entering the farming world, the possibilities of job creation and economic activity are ample and are already being perceived.
On the other hand, the connections involved at national and international levels are very attractive and could potentially generate many alliances and opportunities.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaignFinancing the filming and editing of "Visiones Regeneradoras", which are video capsules extracted from the RegenAG courses, and compiling materials for a future documentary: "Regeneremos la Tierra" - "Let's Regenerate the Earth".
To date we have ourselves covered the costs of filming the first two courses, with the support of Finca La Donaira and other friends. In order to film and edit the remaining courses we need your help.
With the funds obtained we intend to do the following:
1. Pay for the travel, accomodation and food costs of the 4 people who film and edit the courses
2. Pay for the equipment costs required to continue filming the next courses
3. Symbolically pay for the services of this professional filming and editing team in order to compensate their time and efforts
Once these priorities have been covered, all additional support the project receives will be used to:
a) Finance the making of a full documentary about Regenerative Agriculture, and its promotion: "Regeneremos la Tierra" ("Let's Regenerate the Earth").
b) Create an online platform that allows people who apply what they have learnt on the courses to remain in contact, share experiences and continue to learn together, while promoting their projects - as well as offering the general public the contents of these courses and further learning.
Team and experienceEach of the RegenAG teachers offers decades of hands-on experience, and they are all top names in their fields at international level, with an excellent reputation as trainers and consultants.
The people who are working to put together the series of courses in Spain and spread their contents have been learning and applying Regenerative Agriculture for years, and we share the clear vision that these are realistic and essential tools in the face of the current challenges that involve the environment, the economy, employment, food, our rural communities, etc.
The filming and editing team are all professionals with a good deal of experience behind us, specifically filming contents that contribute to developing a new social and environmental paradigm.
Quality translations into Spanish and English are carried out by a professional interpreter/translator who has specialized in this field for a number of years.
We are all moved by a profound respect for the wisdom of nature and our deep faith in the idea that human beings can change the course of history for the best, if we have the appropriate tools and get together to work with passion.
