Gloucestershire regenerative environment and agriculture transition

Home: Welcome
Home: About

Regenerative agriculture is based on five 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. Integrate grazing livestock into the system

Exchanging knowledge

We’re subsidising Gloucestershire farmers to attend events across the county where they can learn, mentor, and share experience. We’re developing a network of farmers, advisors, mentors, and convenors who are ready to be part of the regenerative transition.

The GREAT Project is putting Gloucestershire in the vanguard of the transition to regenerative agriculture.

GREAT stands for Gloucestershire Regenerative Environment and Agriculture Transition. It’s a three-year project, funded by Thirty Percy, to boost the transition to farming methods that restore the soil, water and air.  We want to join the dots between farmers, advisors, growers, mentors and their communities to facilitate this change that is so sorely needed for a resilient future for farms, nature and the earth.

We have three core aims: build evidence, facilitate knowledge exchange, and nurture enterprise.


Building evidence

We’re building the evidence for regenerative farming, growing and food systems. By talking to farmers and new entrants, and doing case studies, we’re finding out what works, what’s needed, and how to make it happen.


Nurturing enterprise

We’re supporting farmers, growers and new entrants to innovate and grow their businesses. We’re running subsidised enterprise bootcamps and webinars, a mentoring programme, and a new entrants programme.
