Regenerative Agriculture In Challenging Environments: Lessons From Farmers In Northern England

Newcastle University Stand C40

In 2022 both Leeds and Newcastle University launched projects related to regenerative farming in the north of England. We wanted to learn more about how farmers in our region have adopted and adapted regen ag practices to cope with sometimes challenging environmental conditions. As a first phase of the projects, surveys and discussions with farmers were used to understand their perspectives on the regen ag journey in the north of England. In this session we will present the findings from these surveys in an engaging and interactive way and invite participants to reflect and feedback on their own experiences with regen ag in challenging environments. The outcomes of the workshop will help Newcastle and Leeds to shape research and outreach programmes that address the needs of the regen ag community in the north of England.
