Dirt to Soil: One Family’s Journey into Regenerative Agriculture

We invite you to join The GardenWorks Food Readers Book Club's fall gathering. We will discuss Dirt to Soil: One Family's Journey into Regenerative Agriculture by Gabe Brown. 

In Dirt to Soil Gabe Brown tells the story of that amazing journey and offers a wealth of innovative solutions to restoring the soil by laying out and explaining his “five principles of soil health,” which are:

  • Limited Disturbance
  • Armor
  • Diversity
  • Living Roots
  • Integrated Animals


The Brown’s Ranch model, developed over twenty years of experimentation and refinement, focuses on regenerating resources by continuously enhancing the living biology in the soil. Using regenerative agricultural principles, Brown’s Ranch has grown several inches of new topsoil in only twenty years!

Find out more and discover as a community different ways our western Chicagoland region can engage in this important topic of earth stewardship.
