What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative Agriculture embodies a set of farming principles and practices designed to enhance biodiversity, soil quality, watershed health, and ecosystem services.
Its primary goal is to sequester carbon in both soil and aboveground biomass, countering the prevailing trend of atmospheric carbon accumulation on a global scale.
Simultaneously, it delivers increased yields, resilience to climate fluctuations, and improved health and vitality for farming and ranching communities. Although these principles are not new and were common before the industrialization of the food system, regenerative agriculture, in today's context, serves as a means to produce healthy food while addressing environmental concerns.
This approach stems from decades of scientific and applied research within global communities focused on organic farming, agroecology, Holistic Management, and agroforestry. Notably, in 2018, Amazon recognized regenerative agriculture as the next significant food trend in both the United States and worldwide.
Our stance on regenerative agriculture and agriculture at large.
WOA respects all farmers, acknowledging the challenges they face in transitioning to regenerative practices. When addressing the environmental crisis linked to the current food system, we emphasize the larger operational systems, not the farmers themselves.
Our purpose is not to criticize but to contribute positively, building on existing foundations for a better future. We aim to inclusively bring people along on this journey, recognizing that perfection is unattainable. Our approaches are endorsed by global authorities on sustainable agriculture, emphasizing the advocacy for regenerative agriculture and support for regenerative farmers as our path to positive change.
