Regenerative agriculture is a type of farming that sequesters CO2 while improving water retention, soil health, and rainfall conservation. It uses techniques such as agroforestry, crop rotation, and rotational grazing, while excluding pesticides and factory farming. Many of the techniques used are an adaptation of indigenous and local farming practices. Regenerative agriculture can help communities produce affordable and high-quality food while providing employment to rural areas. In certain parts of the world, such as rural Guatemala, it can also maintain social stability and reduce the rate of forced migration due to poverty and crime.
