What is Regenerative Agriculture? The term regenerative agriculture is believed to have been coined in the 1980s by Robert Rodale to describe a holistic system of farming that goes beyond sustainable and encourages continuous innovation and improvement. More recently, the term was promoted and taken mainstream by Allan Savory, the founder of the Savory Institute, who created a system of holistic management that mimics the ways wild herds of animals move to rebuild soil. Today, there is no one definition for regenerative agriculture, but there is widespread agreement on the type of practices used in regenerative farming.
