National Regenerative Agriculture Day is a united national movement to heal the heart of the food chain.

Each year we focus on a leading campfire conversation, and this year we take a deep dive into the question “What exactly is NET-ZERO?” Are you just as confused as we are? With so many conflicting ideas, statistics, reports and experts opinions, do you find it difficult to have a strong grasp on how NET-ZERO will impact you and your family? What are the tangible impacts will it deliver to our communities on the ground?Is it a feasible solution to our current state of affairs or is it a concept of smoke and mirrors?

Join us over NRAD2022 as we ask the questions and engage the brilliance of our community to share their answers. It is our goal to unpack this in a hand-on heart-hearty conversation as we lead up to The Gr8 Deb8 during National Regenerative Agriculture Day – foodies and farmers hijacking Valentines Day – 14th Feb 2022.

THE NRAD STORY
National Regenerative Agriculture Day (NRAD) is a united national day to raise awareness around Regenerative Agriculture and the benefits of helping heal the land and our waterways. This day is about a powerful fundraising stand and educational movement between our farmers, our Original people, our educators, our gardeners, our foodies, our students, our #heartyourfarmer and the people of our nation as we attempt to restore balance back to our soils, environments and food chains. This is a movement of people who are standing true for the future of Australia and Planet Earth. It's time to celebrate the soilutions and bring health, sovereignty and sustainability to the future of our children. #sacredregeneration

Build A Community Garden

How did you get involved with the Inverell Community Gardens and when? Well, I’ve been involved with Inverell Community Gardens since it first started at its new site in 2012. I was there when we planted the first tree. My children, my beautiful children, helped plant the first olive tree. The Gardens originally came about as a result of a group who were concerned about food security in Inverell. And they really wanted to show people how Inverell, I guess, was self-sustaining, and can be self-sustaining, and has been in the past. – to teach the new generations how things

You Can Taste The Carbon

Regenerative Chocolate. That’s two of my favourite words right there. And I know I’m not alone as a chocolate lover. There are few food items that we so powerfully associate with pleasure, comfort, and indulgence. But pure chocolate — cacao — has also unique properties that are beneficial to health. In South America, cacao is called “food of the gods.” The Mayan and Aztec peoples called it ‘xocolatl’ and consumed it as a sacred drink. It’s packed with antioxidants that are readily absorbed by our bodies. It’s also high in two nutrients most people don’t get enough of in their

Lettuce Turn Up The Beat

The origins of the Yamba Farmers & Producers Market began around seven years ago as a project of the the Northern Rivers Food Links program. The Food Links program received Federal funding in 2008 to establish a number of food projects across 7 local government councils. The Clarence Valley Council received $50K to establish a community garden and the resources to establish a farmers market. After community and business consultation it was decided to establish a farmers market in Yamba. The next round of consultation was with the farmers and what were there needs and priorities. The site selected was
