Regeneration

Regenerative agriculture leads to healthy soil, capable of producing high quality, nutrient dense food while simultaneously improving, rather than degrading land, and ultimately leading to productive farms and healthy communities and economies.

why "regenerative"?

Because “sustainable” is just not good enough!

  • The integrity and function of our soils have become seriously impaired, so much so, that most of the applied fertiliser ends up polluting our rivers.
  • Our farms are not resilient enough to handle the increasingly challenging climate variability.
  • The production of “cheap” food that looks good, but with low nutrient density, comes at an enormous environmental and health cost.
  • We have unwittingly enslaved ourselves to a system that perpetuates the downward spiral of environmental degradation, diminishing profits and poor health.
  • South African farm debt has increased from roughly R80 billion in 2008 to R160 billion in 2017.
  • Family farms are disappearing and swallowed up by corporate farms.
  • Profit margins are increasingly being eroded.

the solution

What’s needed is a fundamental redesign of how agriculture, and our place therein, is viewed. We need to reprogram the way we think and approach farming. Only if we think holistically and regeneratively, will we create a future that is resilient, profitable and healthy for us, our crops and the environment.

Regenerative Farming Made Simple

  • Build topsoil deep down - drought resistant, fertile
  • Restore soil function - lower fertiliser use and pollution substantially
  • Improve plant health - lower pesticide use
  • Increase water infiltration and water holding capacity
  • Improve crop quality – appearance, nutrient density and shelf life
  • Improve and sustain production for years to come
  • Increase farm profitability
