Groundswell’s Mission Statement



Groundswell Agriculture hosts the annual Groundswell Festival alongside other outreach events to share the science & latest information on regenerative agriculture, helping to encourage soil focused, productive farming practices, and to extend knowledge and support those who are on the regenerative journey.


Regenerative agriculture is a set of farming practices in line with the following soil health principles. It is an outcomes-based journey of improvements, within a given context.


Soil Health Principles: 

1. Don’t disturb the soil

2. Keep the soil surface covered

3. Keep living roots in the soil

4. Grow a diverse range of crops

5. Bring animals back to the land
