Gaviota Givings

This week’s farmer feature highlights Guner and Heidi Tautrim of Gaviota Givings. The family-run Orella Ranch is located on the Gaviota Coast of California, a stone’s throw from the Pacific Ocean and just 20 miles west of Santa Barbara.

The Essence of Regeneration

Amongst the numerous accolades and positive reviews the movie has received, there have been ongoing conversations about the lack of cultural representation in the film, specifically the Indigenous roots of regenerative practices. We are incredibly thankful to those who have taken the time to candidly share your insights. We view your feedback as a gift to ensure the evolution of this movement to regenerate soil, which in turn regenerates society.
