Australian case studies in regenerative agriculture

At Soils For Life, we support Australian farmers in regenerating soils and landscapes. Our case study program identifies farmers who are successfully implementing regenerative agriculture practices so that other land managers can learn from their experiences.

What’s so important about soil?

We don’t always see how they work, but healthy soils play a critical role in human health and happiness. They support us to produce nutrient-rich food. They help provide ecosystem services like clean water and air.

Healthy soils also retain water and promote biodiversity. Not only that, they help to regulate the earth’s climate and store more carbon than all of the world’s forests combined.

But Australia has an alarming problem. Two thirds of our soils have disappeared since European settlement. The good news is regenerative landscape management practices help to restore our soils.

Need practical solutions?

Our detailed case studies showcase the outcomes and results of a switch to regenerative practices in all parts of Australia, allowing you to access the collective wisdom of leaders in regenerative agriculture.

Our Knowledge Hub contains a growing collection of resources and articles for landholders.
