Healing Ecosystems and Stabilizing the Climate

Regenerative agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that increase biodiversity, builds and enriches soil, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services. It also increases soil carbon storage, which is both a buffer against climate change and can reduce the dangerous amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

Just as nature is constantly evolving, regenerative agriculture is a system of continued learning and improvement and adapting to local dynamic conditions. It combines the best practices of organic, permaculture, holistic management and agroecology, while honoring a commitment to just and equitable relations with all stakeholders including farmworkers, as well assuring humane treatment of livestock.

Farming practices have been exploiting, extracting and destroying the ecological assets – soil, water, biodiversity, and people – that are the very foundation of its ability to produce food. It is imperative that agricultural systems are redesigned to mimic nature’s regenerative force if the world is to be able to feed a growing population in the face of the uncertainties of climate change.

Regenerative agriculture has demonstrated remarkable results in eliminating toxic inputs, increasing fertility, regenerating soil life and strengthening on-farm resilience against climate extremes. Scientists, and regenerative farmers and ranchers share their knowledge and experience on how to transform agriculture.


Regenerative Agriculture: Nourishing the Soil, Healing the Planet

This short video highlights regenerative ranchers and farmers who are bringing life back to working landscapes by mimicking the creative forces of nature. Regenerative agricultural practices draw down atmospheric carbon and sequester it in the soil where it boosts fertility and nurtures biodiversity, making this approach to agriculture a key solution to mitigating climate change.
