Syntropic Farming, Regenerating Life While Harvesting Nutritious Food with Victor Pires
Show Notes

In this week's episode, I talk to Victor from Brazil, who has spent most of his life learning about environmental science, sustainable food systems, and Syntropic farming. Victor and his friend were the first people to start a Syntropic farm in Australia and he currently runs the website syntropicgardener.com. Syntropic farming is all about creating life through systems that bring together landscapes, flora, fauna and humans in harmony. Unlike industrial agriculture, where biodiversity and human engagement are largely being removed from the system, Syntropic farming aims to utilize biodiversity to encourage healthier ecosystems from which we can harvest delicious food ingredients. In Syntropic farming, humans are stewards of the land, who manage and accelerate growth, while also creating balance.


Episode Overview:

  • Victors background into environmental science and sustainable food systems
  • What is Syntropic Farming? How did it get started?
  • Syntropy vs Entropy and how it fits into natural cycles
  • How Syntropic farming regenerates soil
  • How you can apply syntropic principles in your garden
  • Victor’s favorite traditional Brazilian food recipe
