A list of regenerative farms practicing agroecology in the UK
Regenerative agriculture farms, or agroecological farms in the UK practice agorecology, a collection of principles which mimic the rhythms of the natural world. Resulting in increased biodiversity, enriched soil, improved watersheds, and mitigation of global warming.
The importance of regenerative agriculture is vast. With its principles based around Traditional Ecological Knowledge and place based land stewardship around the world. Currently, local, regenerative farms are hard to find. But over the past year I’ve been gathering a list to share which I’ll try to add to often, so bookmark and check back now and again!
