Regenerative agriculture is an ecological principle that focuses on building and holding stores of carbon in the soil. Soil carbon captures vital nutrients within the soil and supports diverse populations of microorganisms responsible for the release and recycling of these nutrients. Carbon also improves the ability of the soil to capture and hold water. Soil carbon is key in creating resilience across an agricultural landscape. Better water and nutrient cycling means less dependence on outside inputs and less cost associated with improving our farm’s productivity.
