Our focus is to build confidence in approaching practice change, removing barriers and smoothing the path for the next cohort of regenerative farmers.
Unlike a decade ago, building soil health through regenerative farming approaches is no longer niche. Increasing numbers of farmers are looking to soil regeneration as a solution, having seen the benefits that healthy soils have brought to leading farmers around the country.
However, there is a wide gap between interest and action. Changing practices involves risk and requires investment – of time, energy and money. Farmers need support to get to the point where they have confidence to take those risks and make those investments.
In the years ahead, we will focus on building this confidence, to remove barriers and smooth the path for the next cohort of regenerative farmers.
We believe that providing farmers with the knowledge, skills and supporting social infrastructure they need to lead a national effort to rebuild and restore soils will strengthen Australia’s response to climate change while enabling the production of healthy, plentiful food and fibre in ways that are good for farmers, communities and the planet.
