Da horta à floresta – From garden to forest
A farm called Sitio Semente near Brasilia is taking regenerative agriculture to a whole new level. One of the first steps of returning nutrients back into the soil was through the application of rock dust. In this system, only one initial application of rock dust is required, with no external inputs required thereafter. RTE is advocating for this agroforestry model in semi-tropical and tropical regions worldwide. This model can be easily adapted to a region’s culture and habitat with its great potential for growing a diversity of crops, from fruits and vegetables to nuts, coffee, cacao, and other tree-based crops.
