LEARN ABOUT: REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE
Hear from actual regenerative urban farmers
Hosted by Bailey Peryman – Cultivate Christchurch, Hannah Tatton – Regenerative Farmer, Julia Milne – Common Unity Project Aotearoa, Sarah Smuts-Kennedy – For the Love of Bees and OMG vision holder
Learn about current urban and rural regenerative projects in NZ and overseas and how these farms of the future can and are being scaled up.
REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE: rebuilds soil by supporting its biological life, leading to carbon sequestration in soil & aboveground biomass – water restoration for clean NZ waterways– increased biodiversity – enhanced ecosystems – nutritious food – social prosperity & cohesion.
We imagine an Urban Farm every 1 km in our cities. Developing credible climate change ready infrastructure by growing food to prepare for our future.
Come and give your feedback so we can deliver it to Parliament and show them NZ citizens want a national transition to regenerative agricultural practices so we can become climate change ready.
What do WE need to do to upscale our current models?
This event is free however a koha will be gratefully accepted at the door which will go to the Common Unity Project.
