While Australia is dealing with a pretty great economy currently, they’re also dealing with issues to their environment and climate as a whole. The health of the soil in Australia right now is not great and it is forcing farmers to think about regenerative agriculture. This is a process that improves soil in a sustainable way. Australians are currently spending a very low amount of their money on food. So farmers are now forced to produce food at a cheaper price which leads to poor quality food and eroded and degraded soil. Regenerative agriculture can solve both of these things at once.
- Australia is realizing a very positive economic boom right now, however they are having major issues with regards to their environment and climate.
- Regenerative agriculture has already begun in Australia and is providing a way of hope in facing the problems they’re dealing with such as climate change and lack of soil health.
- Australians are spending less money on food that previous generations and because of this farmers are forced to produce cheaper food that is less healthy.
“Regenerative agriculture seeks to work with nature, to provide food and fibre while building soil, resilience, diversity, and community. It challenges farmers to go from reductionist to holistic thinking and find ways to work with nature by mimicking natural systems and generating fertility on the farm as much as possible.”
