Or…Why Should We Farm Like the Earth Depends On It?

Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services.

Regenerative Agriculture captures carbon in soil and aboveground biomass, reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulation. This means that regenerative agriculture has the potential to reverse climate change.

Practices include recycling as much farm waste as possible, composting and holistic planned grazing of livestock.

Why is Regenerative Agriculture Important to Health?

Regenerative agriculture leads to healthy soils, which leads to nutrient dense food. Nutrient dense food means a healthier you. Less use of inputs in farming leads to healthier air & water for all of us. Healthier soil also means more carbon is being removed from the atmosphere and put into the ground, helping to solve the global climate crisis, which leads to a much healthier you.

So we farm like the earth depends on it.

 

Because it does.

And so do you!
