Regenerative agriculture is a long-term, holistic design that attempts to grow as much food using as few resources as possible in a way that revitalizes the soil rather than depleting it, while offering a solution to carbon sequestration. The mantra is the slogan: “Healthy Soil = Healthy Food = Healthy People.”

Many of the practices associated with regenerative farming are management practices associated with organic agriculture to build soil health, promote nutrient retention, and encourage pest and disease resistance. However, regenerative farmers have zero-tolerance for synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and other inputs that disrupt soil life.

FOOD FOREST AND EDIBLE LANDSCAPING:

Cultivating healthy food is noble, we do it through cultivating healthy people and soil. Medicinal food is the center of our community. Our food forest starts at the fresh water spring nearest the community center and continues for miles. Our forest gardens and landscaping produce tons of food. We have terrace gardens and swales to catch water and send it into the ground, building our aquifer. We believe the forest is the best garden. It is its own ecosystem, never needing outside fertilizer, watering, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc.

We promote a healthy living soil. Our soil is an ecosystem in itself. We produce over 5,000 kilos of mangoes each year. There are hundreds of mature fruit-producing trees and over a hundred and thirty varieties. Each property is planted with an edible landscaping full of pineapples, bananas, plantains, oranges, limes, lemons, papaya, turmeric, ginger, teas, edible flowers, katuk, chaya, saragundi, yuca (potato), moringa, okinawan spinach, and much more.

Ficus citrifolia an enormous tree that grows up to 30 meters. Locally called Higeron, aka wild banyantree, it is considered a tropical keystone species. Figs are a major component of the diets of more species of animals than any other tropical perennial fruit. Since F. citrifolia fruits year round, many primates, birds and other species feed exclusively on figs during seasons when other fruit is scarce. Additionally, the knobby, hollow, lattice-like trunk of this tree provides a home for thousands of invertebrates, rodents, bats, birds, and reptiles.
