Regenerative Agriculture practices help us fight the climate crisis by pulling carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the ground.
A conservation and rehabilitation approach to food and farming systems
Regenerative Agriculture focuses on topsoil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving the water cycle, enhancing ecosystem services, supporting biosequestration, increasing resilience to climate change, and strengthening the health and vitality of farm soil. Practices include recycling as much farm waste as possible and adding composted material from sources outside the farm.
The use of Regenerative agriculture on small farms and gardens is often based on philosophies like permaculture, agro-ecology, agro-forestry, restoration ecology, keyline design, and holistic management. Large farms tend to be less philosophy driven and often use "no-till" and/or "reduced till" practices. As soil health improves, input requirements may decrease, and crop yields may increase as soils are more resilient against extreme weather and harbor fewer pests and pathogens.
