Develop regenerative agriculture in Europe
We need more farmers to restore our soils and ecosystems!
Industrial agriculture has been exploiting and degrading our soils for decades. Hedges and trees were eliminated from the fields and naturally present nutrients replaced by artificial fertilizers. The resilience of naturally diverse ecosystems has vanished and is now managed through extensive use of pesticides, which end up in water, organisms and eventually in our foods.
This spiral of destruction causes more and more catastrophes, such as drastically diminishing insect populations and massive CO2 emissions impacting climate change.
With your help, we want to reverse this process and restore our soils to become CO2 sinks, regenerate the resilience and diversity of agricultural ecosystems and simultaneously improve the livelihood of farmers and their surrounding communities.
Is this you?
You want to integrate restorative agricultural practices into your existing or planned farm, e.g.
- Multifunctional agroforestry systems
- Deployment of animals as ecosystem service providers
- Soil improving crop combinations and -rotations, minimal tillage and direct seeding
You want to intensify, diversify or expand your operation and need financial support, e.g. for:
- Acquiring new land
- Planting trees or bushes
- Acquiring machines, etc.
Then contact us through this form, we look forward to hearing from you!
- You possess land or have the opportunity to acquire a specific piece of land (possibly with our help)
- You want to practice farming that restores soils and their organisms instead of destroying them
- You are willing to operate transparently and to share your experience with others
We can imagine various kinds of collaboration and are keen to discuss those with you. Elements of support through us could be, e.g.:
- Financial support through loans and equity with shared risk
- Coaching from experts and networking with other farmers on regenerative farm design
- Coaching on business planning
- Marketing and distribution support through Ecosia’s network
We like to keep it simple and pragmatic - just contact us!
