If you are into agriculture, food supply chain, non-profit, community building, accelerator programs. This episode is for you. 

What if farming wasn't just a means of survival but a way to nature restoration? And instead of being part of the problem destroying our soil, biodiversity, and amplifying climate change, it became part of the solution?

Let me introduce you to a new (not so new 😉) type of agriculture. Regenerative farming. It doesn't just sustain nature, it restores it. It brings back the health of the soil, sequesters carbon, and boosts biodiversity. For the future of our planet and our food, regenerative farming isn't just an option, it's a necessity.

Climate Farmers are supporting farmers in the transition towards regenerative agriculture. They are building the infrastructure to scale regenerative agriculture in Europe.

Climate Farmers provides a platform for farmers to meet and network, learn from each other and from experts, get regenerative agriculture consulting and get transition financing as they sell carbon credits. They also support retailers in their supply chain transition to regenerative agriculture produce.

🌿 They are a community of 700+ farmers from 16 different countries

🌿 Got 1M € funding raised without giving away company shares

🌿 32 FTEs
