INTRODUCTION

Through FAI’s own regenerative farming journey, we have observed that transitioning farms to regenerative agriculture requires a very different strategy to the conventional ways that supply chain managers have implemented sustainability measures in the past. It requires managers to take the time to understand the complexity that regenerative agriculture embraces.

This ground-breaking course is designed to help food supply chain professionals better understand the challenges and opportunities of moving towards supply networks that actively regenerate our planet, and how they can effectively influence and drive this change.

Learn how to adopt an agroecological approach that can reduce or remove the financially and environmentally high input costs, prevent disease, sequester carbon and buffer the effects of drought and flood – moving farms toward a more resilient and consistently productive system.

After completing this course, you will have a solid grasp of what it means to embrace regenerative agriculture, working with rather than against nature. This course is aimed at food supply chain professionals – including executives, investors, buyers, and managers or anyone interested or involved in influencing supply chains.

FAI Farms and Roots of Nature’s Caroline Grindrod will be hosting an open access live webinar session to kick-start this course. It will include a short introduction to the course and provide an opportunity to meet fellow course attendees and ask any questions you may have. To register your interest please email info@faifarms.com.

FURTHER INFORMATION

For many current stories of people and solutions that are shaping the regenerative future for food and farming, our Farm Gate Podcast with Farmwel has fortnightly episodes covering topics such as regenerative finance, scaling regenerative, regenerative agriculture for kids, regenerative oceans and many more. Our podcast will complement your regenerative agriculture training by keeping you up to date with what’s currently going on within the regenerative farming network.

Soon to come is our producer-focussed ‘Practical Regenerative Agriculture’ course aimed at those working directly with our land, providing guidance on what adopting regenerative principles looks like on the ground and in a farmer’s day-to-day life.
