 In this time of unprecedented global change, people
everywhere are waking up to the need to downsize, recycle,
buy local, and eat and grow more fresh, organic produce.To
grow nutritious food locally for a whole community requires
good seeds, good soil and good farming; and the means to
sustain all three. In addition to the use of organic and
beyond organic methods, adopting the principles of
Regenerative Agriculture can help farmers create ever more
regenerative cycles of local production and consumption. In
this way, everyone benefits including the planet. 
Darren Doherty, a foremost authority in Broadacre

can become beacons of regeneration, working together with
local communities for their joint collective future. He will
share techniques for use on farms and by individuals for
waste recycling, water-harvesting, rapid soil development,
as well as other methods for managing land regeneratively on
a broad scale.
