What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative Agriculture is a way of viewing a farm or garden as an integrated dynamic system -- self-contained, self-sustaining and perpetuating -- that follows the cycles of nature. Pest control, disease control, weed control and soil fertility are all addressed through a "closed loop" approach to growing food primarily by building soil health. Regenerative agricuture achieves true self-sustainability by ultimately removing dependency on inputs (such as fertilizers and soil inputs) from the outside.
