The 7M's of Food System Regeneration - The Spanish Case
:: regeneration :: soil :: pre-desert ::
How does the soil work? Can we affect its health? Can regenerative practices truly revitalize soils & farms, economy & society? And how is all that taking shape in Iberia, Europe's food basket and also one of its most castigated, pre-desertic regions?
Ana Digón is a freelance socio-political scientist, professional translator & interpreter, meeting facilitator, organizer of educational and social events, writer for various publications and a commited communicator in areas regarding the Soil, the Soul and Society.
Born in 1976, with a BA (Hons) in Modern Languages and European Studies from the University of the West of England, where she specialized in simultaneous and consecutive interpreting (Eng/Sp/Fr), Ana has worked since then in various sectors (law, project management, brand design, child and adult education, event organisation...) while also training in permaculture, regenerative farming, consciousness work and group facilitation.
Of Spanish-British origin, and a tireless traveller, her work as interpreter and translator has allowed her to meet, work with and learn from some of the greatest teachers and activists of our time, particularly in the area of regenerative agricultural and food systems, becoming also a co-organizer of training tours for some of these visionary leaders, as well as co-founder and coordinator for the last decade of the Regenerative Agriculture Association in Iberia (Spain and Portugal).
Thoroughly inspired also by the teachings and philosophy of different facilitators from around the world, and appreciating the joys of effectively facilitated meetings and processes, Ana applies and is continuously training in various group facilitation and personal development methodologies, including Deep Ecology, Process Work, Dragon Dreaming, Sociocracy, Visual Facilitation and others. Ana works to apply and spread such tools, motivated by the firm understanding that regenerating our soils and our relationships will build bridges towards the future in these times of climate, food, economic and social challenges.
Ana feels above all part of the huge and amazing web of life that we are lucky to share, and is passionate about transmitting that connection, as well as specific practical tools so we may co-create the world we want for our generation and future ones.
