The Foundations of Regenerative Agriculture

This course is the perfect starting point for food and fiber companies looking to learn more about one of the most promising potential solutions to biodiversity loss and global warming.

Through tailored online learning we help supply chain professionals better understand the challenges and opportunities of regenerative agriculture. We explain how leveraging ecological principles and processes can move us towards production practices that build resilience and produce the highest quality nutrient-dense foods.

This course is bespoke and tailored to fit the unique needs of your organisation.

For more information contact us or book a meeting today.


We can accommodate any group size and level of agricultural knowledge.

We introduce you to FAI’s Regenerative Outcomes Framework.

The course starts and ends with a tailored live workshop with our regenerative agriculture team.

All group members receive access to a core online component of approximately 10 hours of self-led, interactive, multimedia training content tailored to supply chain professionals.

Live chat forum support your journey throughout the course.

Through the second live workshop we allow time for discussion and begin scoping out your company’s roadmap to regenerative agriculture.

Additional Options

In addition to the above features, we can offer any of the following options to add to your tailored regenerative agriculture foundations course;

Course Content - Online Section

The Basics

This section delves into the tricky terminology often associated with regenerative agriculture and gives you a clear and concise way to describe the approach.

We explore why regenerative agriculture works with ecological principles and processes rather than prescriptions and standards and introduce our Regenerative Outcomes Framework.

Redefining productivity - the ecosystem processes

This section is all about increasing production and resilience by enhancing the performance of the land and its ecological processes:

Water Cycle
How to buffer and retain rainfall to be available to plants for longer throughout the season, optimizing growth and production.

Water Cycle

Soil Health
How to build soil, and fertility to increase plant health and production, and reduce or eliminate the need for costly artificial fertilisers.

Soil Health

How to maximise the most valuable free energy source - the sun - to increase the quality and quantity of primary production.


Air Flow
The importance of soil structure and airflow to support the fixation of free and unlimited atmospheric nitrogen and the cycling of other soil and plant nutrients essential to achieve a high production low input system.

Air Flow

Nature’s Dynamic Networks
By increasing complexity in the system, plants and animals’ resilience to disease can be increased.

Nature’s Dynamic Networks

Practices and tools for achieving regenerative outcomes.

In this section, we cover the main tools and practices available to farmers to achieve an increase in the productivity and effectiveness of their land’s processes.

We explain why regenerative agriculture is context-specific and how farms can design a long-term vision and plan for their operation that achieves their; economic, environmental and personal goals.

We demonstrate how farmers can make carefully considered decisions that will help to achieve their production and life aims, in the short and long term, in ways that positively impact the environment.

We explain how to monitor and measure your regeneration and why being a regenerative farmer is adaptive - an ongoing process of carefully planning, monitoring and responding to feedback.
