Who inspires our cropping farmers?


We asked our case study croppers who inspires them in their journey towards a more regenerative approach to cropping. They mentioned farmers, scientists and educators whose insights and questions helped them reflect and adapt their practices.

If you are looking for fresh perspectives to help clarify your own or generate ideas of other ways of cropping, here is a list of potential farmers, scientists and educators recommended by other croppers.
