When we hold powerful connections to place, the typical boundary between environment and self begins to blur, resulting in an acute feeling of wholeness, community and vitality. Establishing a primal connection to an outdoor landscape tends to make one feel small, inspired and alive. This raw connection has a name coined by the architectural philosophy Biophilic Design: ‘Spirit of Place’.
Bio-Logical Capital’s approach to agriculture relies heavily on integrated rotational management of animals and crops using principals from agroecology and other "beyond organic" practices. Bees are an often overlooked but essential part of this model. They are the connectors, the pollinators, and the silent workers on our farms.
Our farm management goals are long-term diversity, health, and productivity. This approach results in a transformative impact on how people grow food and understand their relationship with the land. In the second part of this blog series, we will discuss how our approach ensures reliable returns and offers multiple benefits to people and the land.
Bio-Logical Capital’s agriculture business is a strong anchor for our projects and generates meaningful profits for our company and the farmers who work the land. We believe that for agriculture to be sustainable, it must be designed to build soil productivity and to produce a variety of nutrient-rich crops that produce strong revenues and sustain communities.
