This week, our #RegenerativeMinute video provides a snapshot of why NOT tilling the earth is so important to growing nutrient-rich food. Currently, both conventional and organic farmers rely a great deal on tillage to control weeds. But some farmers have found a way to grow crops while keeping the ground covered and stable — these no-till farmers have been at the forefront of creating regenerative farming — a way of farming that restores natural resources, rather than depleting — or even sustaining them.
There are many other benefits of NoTill of course – we will feature some of those aspects in future episodes. You can only get a brief glimpse of the value of NoTill in a minute – so this page provides more resources for you to learn about this fundamental practice of regenerative agriculture at your own pace.
