1. Facilitate a peer-to-peer support and learning network between farmers who are willing to investigate, share and demonstrate leading sustainability practices.
2. Support collaborative and independent research to evaluate the applicability of these leading production systems, practices and technologies.
3. Identify mechanisms that enable farmers to demonstrate their sustainability credentials to consumers who want to make more informed purchasing decisions.
RegenWA is the lead organisation in Western Australia for facilitating collaboration between key stakeholders at a local, regional and state level for regenerative agriculture activities. These activities include sharing of information, research, projects, events and news.
This RegenWA project is supported by funding from the Western Australian Government’s State NRM Program and managed by Perth NRM. It is guided by a Steering Committee of 11 members who are all passionate about regenerative farming and come with a range of skills in business management, farming, marketing, health education, and land management.
Identifying and adopting regionally appropriate land management practices that improve soil fertility and landscape function. Working towards ensuring the land is in better condition for the farmers of tomorrow.
An ecological whole-of-system approach to agriculture that focusses on soil health and biodiversity and is backed by independent research and evaluation of outcomes.
Practices that contribute to and benefit from evapotranspiration, condensation, precipitation, and infiltration to rehydrate the landscape. Maintaining green ground cover on the soil’s surface for as much of the year as possible to minimise loss and capture rain where it falls.
Regenerative Agriculture sometimes known as Carbon farming, is very effective at drawing down atmospheric carbon via plant photosynthesis and sequestering this carbon into our farming soils. Carbon is essential for feeding the soil biology, improving water retention and nutrient availability.
By improving above and below ground biodiversity, farming systems become more resilient to the impacts of climate change, pest and disease pressures, and enables greater utilisation of soil nutrients.
Increasing biodiversity leads to: Healthy soil – healthy plants – healthy animals – healthy people – healthy communities - healthy planet.
