Soils for Life is a not-for-profit charity dedicated to supporting Australian farmers and rural communities in regenerating soils and landscapes to build natural and social capital and transform food systems. Soils for Life sits within a complex ecosystem of organisations and groups who share a common overarching vision of:

  • Productive and profitable food and fibre systems
  • Regenerated biodiverse soils and landscapes
  • Resilient and connected communities
  • Healthy, nutritious, abundant food

Soils For Life builds communities of practice around regenerative cultures and thinking to create and enable strong networks and partnerships. Soils For Life builds a strong evidence base to validate and share understandings of regenerative principles, practices and outcomes. Our holistic and transdisciplinary approach encompasses all aspects of regenerative agriculture including ecological, economic, and social transformation. Soils For Life creates local, on-ground farmer support mechanisms including mentoring programs and networks, and we do this in partnership with a range of local and regional organisations.

Soils For Life acts as knowledge broker and champion of diverse regenerative agricultural systems. Our Interim Strategic Framework demonstrates how we work.
