What is Regenerative Farming?

September 1, 2022

Regenerative farming is a sustainable agriculture practice that connects our lands, waters, biodiversity, and climate. It’s a holistic approach that values techniques like composting, rotating seasonal crops, and using natural fertilizers over chemicals.  

Does regenerative farming really make a difference? The answer is yes. Rare’s Lands For Life team sees the success of regenerative farming firsthand in our work supporting smallholder farmers in Columbia.

Around the world, smallholder farmers shape our global food system and economy. When we empower farmers with the tools needed to farm regeneratively, we create a wave of change that helps communities create new social norms for sustainable farming.  

The results are incredible. We restore the soil, biodiversity flourishes, carbon remains in the ground, and we create better community climate resilience.  

And let’s not forget about the benefits of sustainable agriculture for farmers. Farmers see better crops, healthier food, less inequity, more secure jobs, financial security, and stronger communities.    

With regenerative farming, people and nature thrive. It’s a win-win for everyone.
