RegenAg SA is concerned with educating farmers and consumers about the true cost of Industrial Agriculture – the depletion of soils, the destruction of the carbon cycles, the dependency on fossil fuels, the high greenhouse gas emissions and human health implications – and showing how Regenerative Agriculture is the solution to most of these problems. Our goal is to redirect South African agriculture toward regenerative methods that rebuild our soils, reduce input costs, protect and enhance the natural environment, mitigate climate change, produce nutrient-dense healthy foods, promote biodiversity, animal welfare and economic justice to farmers and farmworkers.
