Regenerating agriculture and regenerating society
“A truly regenerative agriculture is one in which all the natural resources we use to produce food get renewed in the process of using them.” – Fred Kirshenmann, thought leader in organic and regenerative agriculture
In this certificate program, you will develop the knowledge and experience to bring about this revolution in agriculture and start farming organically yourself. Applying this simple approach to agriculture widely will transform our agricultural system and society as a whole. More >
The chemical-industrial agricultural and food system contributes profoundly to major problems confronting humanity today—climate change, the energy crisis, the water crisis, social justice, and many others. It needs to be transformed. This program gives you the knowledge and hands-on experience to master a system of agriculture that embodies the very best and most sustainable of organic and biodynamic agriculture, as well as traditional agricultural knowledge systems from around the world.
Through this system, you will learn to contribute powerfully to agricultural solutions that have far-reaching influence on major problems facing humanity. You will learn to draw down CO2 from the atmosphere and fix it in the soil, produce food efficiently without squandering non-renewable fossil carbon resources, reduce water use by building soil water retention capacity and fertility, and take part once again in the perennially nourishing relationship that naturally exists between the farmer, their family, their community and society.
