What is it?
Pronounced 're-jen-uary' - as in regenerate.
Regenuary is simple. For a month source as much of your food as possible from regenerative farming.
In many cases this is difficult so consider as much as possible low impact or positive impact production methods, this applies to all foods, meat, fish, dairy, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes and vegetables.
Where possible source from British suppliers, and do what you can to minimise the impact of transportation.
If it is difficult to source regeneratively produced ingredients look for organic, biodynamic and buy direct from small producers wherever possible.
Look for farm shops and farmers markets, ask questions, do research.
So what is Regenerative Agriculture
“Regenerative Agriculture” describes farming and grazing practices that, among other benefits, reverse climate change by rebuilding soil organic matter and restoring degraded soil biodiversity – resulting in both carbon drawdown and improving the water cycle.
It is a system of farming principles and practices that increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances ecosystem services.
The processes aim to capture carbon in soil and aboveground biomass, reversing current global trends of atmospheric accumulation.
At the same time, it offers increased yields, resilience to climate instability, and higher health and vitality for farming and ranching communities.
The system draws from decades of scientific and applied research by the global communities of organic farming, agroecology, Holistic Management, and agroforestry.
