“Healthy Soil…Healthy People, creating a secure future from the ground up”
CGS aims to reinforce food security by transitioning traditional chemical based agriculture to regenerative systems based on soil biology.
Regenerative agriculture is a conservation and rehabilitation approach to food and farming systems. It focuses on soil regeneration, increasing biodiversity, improving the water cycle, enhancing ecosystem services, supporting bio-sequestration, increasing resilience to climate change and strengthening the health and vitality of farm soil.
The centre currently involves itself with various projects that aim to deliver real change to challenged industries. The most recent is a pilot project based at Maleny Dairies on the Sunshine Coast.
This project based in Maleny and run in partnership with Global Boss International aimed to demonstrate how, the transitioning to regenerative agricultural practice, an industry in decline could achieve outstanding productivity and product far exceeding current quality standards.
