Regenerative Farms is a global alliance of social entrepreneur’s, donors & impact investors. Working together with women & indigenous led agro-ecological farmers training centers to reforest and protect degraded tropical landscapes to solve the UN SDG’s and reverse climate change.
Working hand in hand with female and indigenous leaders, we bring resources to leaders including a micro-food processing center design that stacks multiple game changing innovations that empower women and indigenous communities to restore the earth’s degraded forest lands. The enterprise-based approach provides a driver and funding source for reforestation and long term forest protection. This enterprise model is based on harvesting multiple high value non-timber forest products grown using regenerative agriculture principles in multi-strata agroforestry systems which when designed well can be more biodiverse and can sequester more carbon than natural forests.
Consumers can help speed up our success by urging the companies they buy from to source their ingredients from Regenerative Farms, and by committing to offset their own carbon footprint by supporting efforts that empower women to use agro-ecological approaches that combine forest farming with landscape restoration.
Our success is based on a proven patented, zero waste, zero emissions, micro food processing center franchise. Our Alliance members adopt this game changing technology and put this powerful resource to fund landscape regeneration in the hands of proven farmer trainers, ngo’s, responsible businesses, and the local level leaders who are renowned social entrepreneurs already making progress in empowering women and indigenous farmers.
Our implementation partners each have a long track record of working successfully with small holder farmers, teaching them agro-ecology, reforestation and forest protection. We help them expand their networks and connect them with others like them who are doing the same kind of work around the world. We help connect them to the most recent science and advances in regenerative farming, agro-forestry, and introduce them to cutting edge innovations that can help them empower women and indigenous farmers. We also help connect them to reliable, mission aligned start-up finance and technical assistance as well as companies looking to buy their products. Together we are able to rapidly transform the base of the global food and ag industries, turning consumer’s purchasing power into the seeds of rapid massive planetary regeneration to match the size of the problem.

Using partnerships with AI linked crowd funding games and platforms, our corporate partners can communicate their support for this great work and include consumers in the progress who can make contributions to off-set their own carbon footprint, and further amplify the pace of regeneration.
The need is great, and the time to act is short. By linking collective action, we put tools in the hands of those with the greatest ability to restore and protect tropical forests.
Our approach thrives off of positive feedback loops. Corporations reduce their own climate vulnerability, while consumers gain access to simple ways to act on their conscience and do their part to help reverse climate chaos. We harness their urge to contribute, bringing the collective donations of billions of consumers who happily make whimsical small donations as they check-out of their everyday on-line and in person retail spaces, knowing they can collectively contribute both to improving their own happiness by helping others less fortunate than them, and by offsetting their own consumption.
Our partners app and games provide opportunities for transparency, and mutual engagement in the progress among all our stakeholders. We design in gamified ways that consumers are rewarded for acting kindly, they share their good deeds and positive impact over time thru their virtual social media networks and so do participating retailers and corporations. Communities who are receiving your donations use them to help scale up reforestation and protection of biodiverse forests that drawdown carbon. They measure and monitor their positive progress with social and environmental monitoring and report on their results using the latest robust verifiable approaches.
Our franchising of Dr. Smits’ robust factory and eco-social tropical forest protection design, combined with award winning innovations, improves the lives of billions of women, children and their indigenous communities advancing progress on the SDG’s.
We use your funds and an expansive network of expertise to scale these systems outward to surrounding villages who see the impressive results first hand and become eager for the opportunity to participate and improve their own forests and lives.
Out role is to identify and brining together the stakeholders needed to make this a wild success. We match farmer training organizations with the newest and best regenerative ag and tech innovations that can help them expand and improve their positive impact more quickly. We enable donors and investors to supply new funding streams to these projects, allowing these entrepreneurs to focus their skills on project implementation. By stacking finance from different avenues, we are able to open up further investment that allows for rapid scale-up. By linking these producer communities with companies who purchase their regeneratively produced products, and who can support their reforestation efforts thru their corporate insetting budgets, we help create the pathways needed to fill a major gap that has been preventing significant investment in the land regeneration movement.
We are able to advance on the ground more quickly by taking these funds directly to the most effective and ready social entrepreneurs with a proven track record, relieving them of the many hours normally dedicated to fundraising. Then, because we provide them with ready access to other entrepreneurs doing the same thing, they can accelerate their progress. We ensure their financial success as well, by linking them with partnerships with corporations who want to buy their products. Corporations are eager to find these projects/sources, because they need sustainable sourcing opportunities that match their scale, and they are looking for products that are grown in resilient agroforest systems, this helps companies and their investors reduce their climate risks and stabilizes their ag supply chains.
We layer in capacity building from skilled experts that know how to help enterprises adopt models that are profitable on multiple forms of capital, and ensure the approaches used are designed to scale positive impact rapidly.
