Transforming smallholder agriculture as a climate solution, in Colombia and beyond
Lands for Life program Sustainable Development Goals.

Regenerative farming in Colombia

Rare’s regenerative farming program, Lands for Life, seeks to transform and reimagine how we farm for the future. Through Lands for Life, Rare partners with farming communities in Colombia to implement regenerative and low-carbon agriculture as a powerful climate solution.

The program is Rare’s answer to increasing food and economic security among the world’s smallholder farmers.

Transitioning to low-carbon, regenerative farming

Rare supports farmers and their communities to adopt the most impactful technology, mindsets and regenerative practices that safeguard people, nature, and the climate.
