We experiment and promote sciences, techniques and technologies regenerating the environment.
Regenerative agriculture is a method of conservation and restoration of food and agricultural systems.
It focuses on topsoil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving water circulation, enhancing ecosystem services, supporting biological retention, enhancing resilience to climate change, and enhancing the health and vitality of farmland soils.
Practices include but are not limited to:
- Home gardens to enhance household food security and nutrition
- Soil food web
- Conservation farming, no-till farming, pasture cropping
- Perennial crops
- Multi-species cover crops
- Natural sequence farming
- Polyculture and full-time succession planting of multiple and inter-crop plantings
- Borders planted for pollinator habitat and other beneficial insects
- Biochar and terra preta
- Animal integration and holistically managed grazing
- Organic annual cropping and crop rotations
- Recycling as much farm waste as possible
- Compost, compost tea, animal manures and thermal compost
We contribute to this micro-farming application.
