What is Regenerative Agriculture?

Regenerative agriculture is based on principles and practices that increase biodiversity, build better soils, improve water catchment and enhance nutrient cycling. Regenerative farmers work with nature drawing from agroecological, organic and holistic management methods, aiming to capture carbon in soil and aboveground biomass. The ultimate goal is to reverse global trends of atmospheric accumulation of greenhouse gases and climate change. Success can also bring increased yields, lower input costs, resilience to climate instability and healthier livestock.

 

The Five Core Principles of Regenerative Agriculture

 

  • Minimise Soil Disturbance

  • Maximise Crop Diversity

  • Keep The Soil Covered

  • Integrate Grazing Livestock

  • Seek Living Roots All Year

 

Here at FarmED we believe a regenerative approach goes beyond farm conservation and environmental sustainability. Those on a true regenerative journey also seek to rebuild functional landscapes, foster thriving farming and growing communities, cultivate local food systems that benefit all, and generate rural enterprise. A regenerative system is diverse and circular.
