Regenerative Agriculture is a rapidly growing and new way of looking at food production.
Around the world, young and brave professionals are working hard to develop new practices and values that aim to make farms regenerate landscapes and soils.
If you’re relatively new to this field and want to experience what it can mean for you, you’ve come to the right place.
What will this week look like?
We believe that the best way to learn about Regenerative Agriculture is not just by learning about a bunch of facts, but by truly experiencing with your own eyes, ears and nose what Regenerative Agriculture is and what it can do for you and the planet. We also believe that connecting with leading pioneers in the field makes a world of difference. That’s why we’ve designed this week for you to do precisely that.

The mindset & principles of Regenerative Agriculture.
The problem: without course correction, what does the future of farming look like in a Mediterranean context?
Regenerative practices for improving soils, water management and biodiversity.
The process: going from conventional (organic) to regenerative.
The importance of Inspiration.
How to connect farms and businesses.
How to integrate regenerative practices in your own business.
Is this for me?

If you’re already familiar with Regenerative Agriculture but feel the pieces haven’t quite come together yet, this 1-week experiential journey might be just for you.
“Where to start? I signed up for the Regeneration Academy’s one-week crash course, with the intention of gaining some practical knowledge and hands-on experience of what regenerative agriculture is, and how it can be used to restore ecosystems and food networks. In reality, it turned out to be so much more than this – it was one of the most transformative, memorable and joyful courses I’ve attended. The team was generous, open-hearted and welcoming, the food was a delight, and we came away feeling emboldened and optimistic as to the futures we can create when we work together towards a common goal. It was an extraordinary experience, and one which I can’t recommend highly enough.”

“I spent an amazing week at the Regenerative Academy in Murcia, Spain to complete a crash course in regenerative agriculture. This is part of my research for my masters degree at Cambridge University. I loved learning the basics of soil health, water capture, food harvesting and composting. 🌱 The course is run on a massive 1,100 hectare farm that used to practice traditional industrial agriculture but now is leading the way in regenerative practices in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss.”

There’s a whole world beneath our feet that must be understood and nurtured, because most of what we need in life comes from the soil, grown for us by farmers. When constantly faced with the looming effects of climate change it is the most refreshing feeling to meet people who are working towards the solution. And not only that, but also teaching others how they can help to heal the planet too. Here on @lajunquera farm at the @regenerationacademy, we spent a week learning about Regenerative Farming with our hands, ears, eyes and noses.”
