The word sustainability has to be one of the most confusing words in the English language. You ask 10 people for a definition, and you receive at least 11 different replies.
Our definition is nature based. Sustainability is a steady state. Just like a teeter totter, we make adjustments to reach equilibrium.
Our environment is an ecosystem. A regenerative model allows for an even distribution, be it resources, goods or harmony between people within our society. Whatever is used needs to be returned in some fashion. We often used the term circularity, but it is folly to think that it's that simple.
For us, the regenerative community follows the simple rule of taking care of our environment, caking care of people and returning what's left over.
