In affiliation with the Trent School of the Environment
Regenerative agriculture practices are approaches to farming with a view to long term sustainable, consistent, healthful and economic productivity.
Grow Change aims to ensure abundant nutritious food that is grown, processed, distributed and shared locally, from farms and gardens that practice Regenerative Agriculture with a view to the long-term food security and health of our environment and our community.
Culturally, Grow Change is a community collaboration. Our local community is comprised of the Counties of Peterborough, Durham, Northumberland and Victoria-Halliburton (PDNVH). Our larger community is the world. If you are, or want to be,
a farmer, or if you are a food worker, a food supplier, a consumer, a merchant, a community activist, a teacher, a student or a concerned citizen, then Grow Change needs you.
Academically, Grow Change will be supported by the Trent School of the Environment and the Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems program. This will enable Grow Change to draw from the sciences, social sciences, humanities and best practices harvested from agricultural practitioners worldwide to address the challenges of securely and sustainably feeding our future through the practice of Regenerative Agriculture.
Organizationally, Grow Change is a startup community-based enterprise inspired by the leadership of The Trent School of the Environment, and a group of long-standing, foresightful community leaders, who have endorsed this project.
