What is Greenstitute?
At Greenstitute, we train all types of people to become permaculture designers by showing real examples of regenerative agriculture in practice.
What is Regenerative Agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture is the practice of working with nature to regenerate top soil, bio-diversity, and human communities living in balance with nature around them. This is a design philosophy, whereby students and teachers observe patterns of nature around them, then attempt to design a fully integrative farm around natural processes.
Can you feed the world only using sustinable techniques?
The simple answer is yes! Conventional thinking assumes we must cut down all of our trees to make way for fields of annual crops, and all the inputs that go along with this unsustainable method of farming.
Agroforestry or silvopasture is a mixed farm with an intercropping of productive trees and fields. In addition, farms are fully integrated (meaning no external inputs), and crops based on perennial crops.
