The Sustainable & Resilient Resources Roundtable
invites you to a workshop on
Regenerative Approaches to
Agriculture & Resource Management.
SRRR invites you to a workshop on Regenerative Approaches to Agriculture and other Fields. The workshop is your choice of donation or free participation.
The Zoom link will be sent to all registrants.
Regenerative approaches to resources including agriculture seek to renew or restore elements of the whole system including materials and energy drawn upon to meet human needs. Regenerative thinking looks at interactions nested within whole systems to reveal practices that are equitable and resilient rather than depletive or do not enhance capacities. The wellbeing of human communities and the natural world of which we are an integral part are deeply considered and respected.
The presenters represent organizations with varied approaches and applications to regeneration. They will share what they have learned from implementing them.
