Our mission is to educate and inspire farmers, ranchers, and consumers about the importance of sustainability, regenerative farming, and biodiversity in our food systems.

Global non-regenerative agriculture, which relies heavily on monoculture, synthetic fertilizers, and pesticides, can have significant negative impacts on the environment and contribute to long-term degradation of our natural resources. Some specific ways that non-regenerative agriculture is hurting the earth include:

  • Soil degradation: The overuse of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides can lead to soil degradation, reducing its fertility and ability to support plant growth. This can also result in soil erosion and the loss of valuable topsoil.

  • Water pollution: The use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides can result in runoff into waterways, causing water pollution and harm to aquatic life.

  • Biodiversity loss: The widespread use of monoculture, the practice of growing a single crop over large areas, reduces biodiversity and can lead to the loss of important habitats for wildlife.

  • Pesticide exposure: The use of pesticides can pose a risk to human health and the environment, as they can persist in the soil and water for years after application.

  • Greenhouse gas emissions: Non-regenerative agriculture can also contribute to greenhouse gas emissions, as synthetic fertilizers release nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.

In contrast, regenerative agriculture, which focuses on building soil health and promoting biodiversity, can have positive impacts on the environment and help mitigate the negative impacts of non-regenerative agriculture. This approach can lead to healthier soils, improved water retention, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
