Soil health, growing, rewilding and regeneration of the earth
Regenerative agriculture and regenerative ways of growing focuses on topsoil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving the water cycle, enhancing the ecosystem, supporting biosequestration and increasing resilience to climate change.
Many scientists and practitioners believe it to be the single most important key to tackling irreversible climate change.
Soil scientist Rattan Lal estimates that if we improved the carbon content of the earth’s soil by just 2%, we could offset 100% of current greenhouse gas emissions.
