The National Regenerative Agriculture Day aims to inspire individuals practicing, supporting or engaging regeneration of our eco-system, soil, food chain, communities and culture to come together on Valentine's Day 2020 to celebrate #heartyourfarmer and help promote regenerative solutions.
THE NRAD GOAL
THIS VALENTINE'S DAY 2020
National Regenerative Agriculture day is a united national movement to raise awareness around Regenerative Agriculture and the benefits to helping heal the land and our communities. This day is about a powerful fundraising stand and educational movement between our farmers, our educators, our gardeners, our foodies, our students, our #heartyourfarmer and the people of our nation as we attempt to restore balance back to our soils, environments and food chains. This is a movement of people who are standing true for the future of Australia and Planet Earth. It is time to end drought one farm at a time and bring health, sovereignty and sustainability to the future of our children. Join the facebook page and connect.
“This is a movement to heal the heart of our foodchain. There is no bigger bolder achievement then to inspire the heart of our farmers across the nation to embrace regenerative agriculture and restore balance back to our soils, environments and food chains.”
NRAD is responding to the the current impact of severe droughts, fires, floods and desertification, by supporting our farmers to increase the carbon in their soil and transition to regenerative agriculture. Increasing carbon in the soil decreases chemical uses, saves water, improves biodiversity and grows healthier food.
BE PART OF SOMETHING AMAZING
WHY IT MATTERS
The state of farming today isn’t ideal. Currently, the carbon levels in our soil is at an all-time low at 1%. Industrial farming practices that result in bare agriculture ground releases carbon into the atmosphere and we lose it from the soil. Many industrial practices have destroyed our natural biodiversity accelerating species extinction and destroying much of the world’s natural wildlife habitat. Furthermore a third of earth’s soil is acutely degraded due to industrial agriculture resulting in desertification with over 40% of the world’s population affected.

Join our Regenerative Farmers as they read, watch and listen. The books contained in the box are actual stories (many from Australian farmers) that have survived drought by adapting their practices towards a regenerative model and transitioned from desertification to total regeneration. The books, dvds and audios map a path of knowledge on each subject that pertains to a regeneration of our soils and food-chain. We hope that these stories and their actual solutions bring immediate hope, rejuvenation and support to our courageous farmers as they seek out long-term solutions to this drought.
