Resource and links to organizations relevant to our work
Our intention is to create a model that allows financial resources to flow into the development of regenerative agriculture hubs across the global south. Bringing together public and private investment, philanthropy and innovation to create physical locations and institutional infrastructure needed for rapid scale-out, training and research. The sites and model will be locally adapted, and then replicated through local investment and capacity building. Our outcomes is to pull together all the resources needed to support local people, connect them with innovations, strategies, techniques and technologies so they are rapidly capable of advancing their own climate adaptations while – providing a regenerative agriculture based drawdown solution based in permaculture and agroecological principles that provide many co-benefits to communities and their ecosystems.
