Philo Ridge Farm’s approach falls under the category of “regenerative agriculture,” farmer Francine Stephens said, offering what she called a “super-simplistic” definition: “We’re trying really hard to put more nutrients into the soil than we’re taking out.”
How can we feed Europe – and feed it well – while preserving nature and the climate? This is the purpose of a study, which main conclusions are summarized in this paper.
Plants thrive in soil that is rich in Soil Organic Matter. A key element of Soil Organic Matter is nitrogen balance. Andre Leu gives some tips for responsible nitrogen management.
With assistance from researchers at Thai Nguyen University of Sciences, farmers are learning to produce biochar, an organic soil enhancer, in their homes and apply it to their crops.
Improving the health of the world’s soils is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, including Zero Hunger and combating climate change and its impacts, FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva, today told participants of the World Congress of Soil Science.
It took a drought and some deep reflection to turn farmer and author Charles Massy from a conventional farmer to one of the leading thinkers in regenerative agriculture today. Here Charles is in conversation with local food activist Kate Walsh from Real Food Projects.
Agroforestry could play an important role in mitigating climate change because it sequesters more atmospheric carbon in plant parts and soil than conventional farming, report researchers.
A restorative farmland finance company is helping organic and regenerative farmers gain long-term, secure access to land through farmland investment. By offering equity and debt investments, the company is able to provide favorable leasing and mortgage opportunities to farmers.
