To mark World Soils Day we spoke to French farmers taking part in the Living Soils initiative, which is supporting them regenerate their farmland
Regenerative farming methods have proven to answer many issues farmers face today. A combination of crop rotation, cover crops and no-till methods have proven to tackle soil erosion, bring back soil biodiversity and increase water infiltration. While these methods also represent a key solution to fighting climate change by storing more carbon into our soils, they can be a source of stress for farmers willing to make the shift.
In this short film, French farmers who joined our Living Soils initiative are sharing their thoughts, struggles and hopes on the shift towards regenerative farming methods.
