“Improving landscapes and communities by fostering regenerative agricultural thinking and practices.”

How will the Foundation ACHIEVE THIS VISION?

The Foundation aims to support people who are motivated ‘to do’ and are ‘implementers of change’ and ‘champions for regenerative agriculture’.

A scholarship will provide funding to attend training courses to access knowledge. A project-based approach will ensure skill development, and a mentoring process will be implemented to provide support and opportunities for network building.

We aim to build leaders in regenerative agricultural practices and support them to lead change.
