*Titles in bold are the ones I have read. I am working on reading all of these, but I only have so much time…. Everything I have included which I have not personally read has come highly recommended from people I trust. 

**Almost all of the links on this page are “associate links” which means that if you buy something on Amazon after clicking one of my links I will get a percentage of the value of what you bought, with no extra cost for you. This is a way you can support the work I do. I would love to be able to spend all of my time teaching people about Regenerative Agriculture, but I need to make money doing it or I will not be able to continue doing it for much longer. Thanks for your support!

*** A lot of these books are much cheaper if you buy them through this link:
