RegenAG UK (RAUK) connects farmers, smallholders, and other interested parties with leading pioneers and trainers/experts in Regenerative Agriculture - via short courses, seminars and workshops - and facilitates collaboration and peer-peer learning.
We recognise the importance of a healthy water cycle, along with mineral cycles and biodiversity, as foundations for a sustainable permanent agro-ecological production base. So we focus on building soils and restoring ecosystems as the foundation to regenerating agriculture and improving resilience, promoting methods and approaches which work synergistically with natural (ecosystem) processes to optimise production whilst restoring / rebuilding resilient biodiverse landscapes.
Alongside this, dependency on external inputs is minimised and where possible eliminated, and we look for optimal animal health and quality of produce, and to increase farm profitability - whilst integrating the human element in ways which support quality of life for the wider community as well as farming families.
So far events have been concentrated in the south/Midlands of England, but this is steadily expanding and we aim to support making the material accessible across the UK and Ireland.
|RegenAG UK (RAUK)||
RegenAG UK (RAUK) is a network/training organisation which promotes Regenerative Agriculture by connecting the world's leading pioneers with farmers and smallholders in the UK via short courses, seminars and workshops, and by facilitating peer-peer learning and practitioner lead experimentation and exploration. We work with international and UK trainers, valuing expertise and experience wherever we find it and drawing on our trainers' skills and knowledge to help develop local practice.
RAUK was initiated by Eliza Pearson, who after attending one of Darren Doherty's Regenerative Agriculture courses in Australia, convened the first courses in the UK, with Aranya's support. At an international level Darren convened further courses with Kirk Gadzia, and Joel Salatin, whilst Aranya and Natasha took on the UK co-ordination, and when Darren then moved on to focus on his Regrarian® platform they continued with a course with Eugenio Gras, another member of the original RegenAG (International) hub training team.

|Social Farms and Gardens (Previously FCFCG)||
Social Farms & Gardens is a UK wide charity supporting communities to farm, garden and grow together.
Our vision - people and communities reaching their full potential through nature-based activities as a part of everyday life.
Social Farms & Gardens was formed by the merger of two long established membership-based charities, the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens and Care Farming UK.
The Soil Association was founded in 1946 by a group of farmers, scientists and nutritionists who observed a direct connection between farming practice and plant, animal, human and environmental health.
Today, we are the UK's leading membership charity campaigning for healthy, humane and sustainable food, farming and land use. We have over 150 staff based in Bristol and Edinburgh and working as certification inspectors across the country.
