So we don’t make MAD MAX a reality!
Regenerative agriculture is a term that is thrown around quite a lot these days but it’s not a buzz word nor is it something to be confused by. It should be seen as a necessary re-imagining of sustainable agriculture where the bar has been shifted from no net decline to one where land managers are aiming for the resurrection / restoration of healthy ecological function. An example of the capacity for continual improvement toward agriculture that works in harmony with the environment by treading lightly on the landscape, producing to achieve the production required for us all to eat.
One of the pioneers of the regenerative food movement framed it best when he said “You as a food buyer, have the distinct privilege of proactively participating in shaping the world your children will inherit.” – Joel Salatin
We’re at a Moment in Time where biodiversity loss is faster than it has ever been to any other time on the planet. An estimated 1% of arable land is lost every year to desertification and salinization. Soil carbon is being stripped through conventional agronomic practices. Major agricultural production areas in Australia are undergoing significant drying trends. We have an ever increasing global population to feed while chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cancer are on the rise. The widespread uptake of regenerative Agriculture is the most important component of a plan to remedy these maladies. Regenerative Agriculture halts the loss of land to marginalisation while hydrological function is enhanced, reducing drought susceptibility animals (and plants) in these systems are healthier and happier resulting in food that has been shown to have enhanced nutritional benefits.
The Future we aspire to is one where regenerative agriculture is the norm. By providing a pathway to market, Organichain represents a viable transition to food production systems that regenerate regional Australia socially, economically and environmentally all the while providing food that is more nutritionally dense whilst minimising biocide use and the legacy of exposure to both growers and consumers. Where the hard-working women men and children on the land have been supported by all who’s food they supply along the path of more natural farming systems.
