REGENERATIVE AND CARBON-NEUTRAL AGRICULTURE
What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture is a collection of practices that focus on regenerating soil health and the full farm ecosystem.
These farming practices work with nature, rather than against her. Among other benefits, regenerative agriculture rebuilds soil organic matter and restores biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle.

History of Regenerative Agriculture?
Both the term “regenerative agriculture” and the practices that define it are not modern creations. Regenerative agriculture practices draw from Indigenous wisdom and practices -- a history that deserves recognition and respect.
"[These practices] are regaining currency in an American West stressed by drought, diminishing resources and climate change." (Article)
