Our Vision

“Improving landscapes and communities by fostering regenerative agricultural thinking and practices.”

How will the Foundation ACHIEVE THIS VISION?

The Foundation aims to support people who are motivated ‘to do’ and are ‘implementers of change’ and ‘champions for regenerative agriculture’.

Initially in 2019 a Scholarship was established to fund one scholar annually to attend training courses in regenerative agriculture. It was project-based to ensure skill development, and mentoring provided support.

Program was developed commencing in 2023 to provide training for at least six participants annually. The four module Program has workshops of two and half days each spaced throughout the year. Participants benefit from coaching in capacity building, personal development, project design and regenerative agriculture. Mentoring assists with the outcomes-based, on-farm regenerative agriculture project.

The aim is to grow leaders in regenerative agricultural practices and to support them to lead change in their industry and communities.

What does the Tree of Life represent?

Tree of life symbolism has a long history, crossing many cultures and has overarching themes and meanings that span across many peoples.

A symbol of connection to all things. The tree has roots that reach deeply into the soil, acknowledging its connection to, and accepting nourishment from the soil and earth. Leaves and branches extend into the sky, acknowledging the sun and accepting the energy that it transforms into nourishment.

The tree of life means that you are not an island, but are deeply connected to the world around you and dependent on it for your ability to grow and thrive.
