Regenerative Food and Farming Week 2023
Regenerative Food and Farming Week 2023

Regenerative agriculture is a type of farming that focuses on soil health — rebuilding organic matter in the soil and restoring its biodiversity. Fortunately, we have organizations like the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) that are leading the way to promote regenerative agriculture and sustainable farming practices.

To contribute to the future of regenerative agriculture, this week from April 2 - 8 we'll be donating $3 for every $1 donated to OCA for the entire week up to $250,000.

The goal of this ecological movement is to plant one billion agaves that will help sequester atmospheric carbon into the soil and subsequently become an inexpensive source of animal fodder.

If there’s one program that encapsulates regenerative farming, The Billion Agave Project is it. To tip the scales in favor of sustainable agriculture, I urge you to donate to this innovative campaign.
