The primary objective of the Regenerative Earth Initiative is to dynamically enhance the regenerative capacity of the Earth System using natural mechanisms that can be amplified by human influence while simultaneously reducing the human impact on Earth’s ecosystems.
Regeneratively Optimised Food & Community Resilience System
The Regenerative Design Framework is a multi-disciplinary knowledge base of principles that can be collated into a framework that fits the context of a bioregional ecology, economy and culture. It will work anywhere! In other words, the Regenerative Design Framework is the structured interface between the theory, the systems, the policies, the collective intelligence, etc. and the tangible grassroots action of getting things done.
Our graduates will be the leaders of the future that we all want to be part of!
The RSD Course covers a comprehensive range of subjects that are relevant the task of leading the re-development of a better world — regenerative farming, ecosystem restoration, community development, etc. The Regenerative Systems Design Course is a blend of online content provided by international experts, plus additional reading & videos, online tutoring, and in-person practicals where participants apply what they have learnt into a Rescue Earth project of their choice. The many elective modules can be studied as standalone courses or as electives.
Initiatives include approved programs / projects that use the Regenerative Design Framework.
The focus of the Rescue Earth System is more about ecosystem restoration, the rehydration of landscapes, and the efficient production of nutritious food than climate change. The reason is simple. If we regeneratively restore the soil fertility of pastures and agricultural land by increasing hydration and soil organic matter, and increase living biomass by restoring ecosystems, we sequestrate carbon and reduce CO2e in the atmosphere — and we stabilise weather — resulting in more consistent rain with less flooding, etc.
The Bird Habitat Restoration Initiative is a collection of projects that are geared to conserve / restore bird habitats -- including farming areas. For example: Cover crops can significantly increase insect numbers (and species) and hence bird numbers.
With rescue.earth and the Regenerative Farming System you can learn to produce a diverse range of the most nutrient dense food in your backyard with less effort than you could ever imagine. An online course with practical experience is available.
You can easily learn to make microbe rich compost that will kick start the growing of ‘beyond organic’ food in your vegetable garden -- veggies that are chemical free, nutrient dense, loaded with anti-oxidants and with a taste of forgotten flavours!
A cover crop is a plant that is used primarily to slow erosion, improve soil health, enhance water availability, smother weeds, help control pests and diseases, increase biodiversity and bring a host of other benefits to Regeneratively Optimised Food production.
The beautiful nature friendly gardens are especially created to be a dynamic habitat (refuge) for bees and insects. Birds are prolific too! Permascapes are developed and maintained by Permablitz volunteers.
