Matt Dunwell from Ragmans Lane Farm interviews Darren Doherty on the true cost of our agricultural systems on the environment and our health.
Darren is one of the leading teachers in regenerative farming, combining the disciplines of Keyline Planning, Holistic Management, perennial planting, building carbon in the soil, mapping, and market access. Regenerative farming has been developed by key people over the last 70 years such as P A Yeomans, Bill Mollison, Alan Savory, Jairo Restrepo, and Andre Voisin, and is now becoming recognised as the key tool in combatting climate change. Darren has bought together their thinking into a cohesive programme that enables farmers to plan profitable enterprises that are not only resilient in the face of a changing climate, but help build soil carbon, rehydrate landscapes and create diverse systems. His work is based on solid practical experience across a wide range of production.
Ragmans Lane Farm is proud to announce that Darren Doherty will be teaching his four day Regrarians Farm Planning course here in June. Darren’s current tour is taking in NZ, France, Spain, the UK, Sweden, Uruguay, Brazil, Chile and Mexico. The course is aimed at commercial farms, but of interest to anyone wishing to learn more about regenerative farming and healing landscapes.
