  • Reflection Question
    Food Learn More about Regenerative Agriculture
    Clean air, clean water and healthy food are just three reasons to care about regenerative agriculture. What are some other reasons? How could/does regenerative agriculture positively impact you and your community?

    Often the use of regenerative agriculture is not only beneficial to the environment, but is also beneficial to the land owner, as the combination of crop uses and other techniques of regenerative agriculture often increase the productivity of the farm itself, and use the space better. A more diverse use of land, silvopasture for example, doubles the streams of income and harvest periods for the farmer, and provides a better natural habitat for the both wild and domesticated plants and animals involved. agriculture is one of the few if not the only human endeavor that can become a carbon sink, and working to implement that can only be positive for the community, economy and individual.

    Land Use Plant Trees
    How is planting trees good for your mental, physical, and spiritual health?

    Even Planting a few trees can help improve the quality of the land that you have, whether being your own back yard or a volunteering opportunity. even just the presence of trees is known to help reduce stress and combat pollution from nearby roads, removing up to 2 kg per year of CO2 from the atmosphere. make it a fruit tree and there you have easy access to seasonal fruit right in your own backyard, often with flowers in the springtime
