Our Theory of Change

We believe that by enabling and empowering farmers to rebuild and restore soils, Australia can mitigate and adapt to climate change and other challenges while producing healthy, plentiful food and fibre in ways that are good for farmers, consumers and the planet.

What we do

Soils For Life champions Australian farmers to regenerate soils and landscapes while producing healthy food and fibre.

Our work is divided into three areas of focus.

We ensure the opportunities and challenges of regenerative agriculture are widely shared and understood

We support farmers to bring their soils to life

We help farmers, scientists and decision makers find common ground on the benefits of regenerating soils and landscapes 

We do this by

Sharing information to inform and enable soil and landscape regeneration.
Connecting farmers with the research they need to improve their soils and landscapes and to understand the economic, social and environmental benefits this presents.
Building farmer networks and creating peer support and learning opportunities to share the benefits and practices of improved soil health.
Fostering collaboration between farmers, scientists and decision makers.

At Soils For Life, we use ‘regenerative agriculture’ to broadly describe any system of principles, practices and decision-making processes that effectively rebuilds soil and landscape health. A regenerative approach to agriculture aims to rehabilitate, enhance and work with, rather than against, ecosystem processes and places a premium on soil health.
