Gardening for the Future, Regenerative Agriculture Workshop Resources

As we imagine what the future may look like, particularly for agriculture and our food system, consider the role that your school, your students, and your Learning Garden can play in contributing to a healthy planet and a strong community.

Regenerative agricultural practices focus on building soil, strengthening local economies, and working with natural ecological processes. This method of growing can have resounding positive impacts.

Check out our resources below for guidance on integrating regenerative practices in your Learning Garden and talking with your students about the impacts of conventional agriculture. You’ll find an erosion experiment, recipes, and seasonal lessons for all grade levels. If you run into any questions, always feel free to reach out to your Garden Educator.
