If you want to look at what climate-smart agricultural looks like in action, check out this short video about farmers in Kenya.
A different but related approach to restoring soil is regenerative agriculture. Regenerative agriculture is a way of farming that grows food and tries to make the land better over time. It uses natural methods to improve soil health, protect water resources, and support biodiversity. Regenerative agriculture practices include planting cover crops, reducing tillage, using compost instead of synthetic fertilizers, and rotating crops. By doing this, farmers can improve the soil's health, which means better yields and less need for chemicals. Regenerative agriculture also helps the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing carbon sequestration in the soil. Overall, regenerative agriculture and permaculture is a win-win for farmers and the environment!
