Description

As part of a global campaign, the Ecosystem Restoration Camps are joining forces with the non-profit Mexican Via Organica and Regeneration International to develop a model for farmers in semi-arid regions to reabsorb carbon from the atmosphere, restore Soil fertility, improve rainwater retention and restore tree cover.

We offer you the opportunity to learn how to restore degraded land, increase organic food production and build a model that works from regenerative practices in the highlands of Guanajuato north of central Mexico.

This practical experience and two-week cultural exchange at the Via Organic Educational Ranch, a training center 15 miles from the UN World Heritage site, San Miguel Allende, will help you develop your perspective and regenerative skills.

Why Ecosystem Restoration Camps?

Sequestering the excess carbon in our atmosphere on a massive scale is one of the last remaining solutions to staving off the worst effects of climate change. By rehabilitating degraded ecosystems and helping farmers convert from industrial to regenerative agriculture, we can sequester enough carbon to create a safe level in the atmosphere (350ppm).

The camps will help to create action towards this solution by teaching large numbers of people how to restore degraded land, whilst giving them the opportunity to work with local farmers who need support in transitioning to regenerative agriculture. At the camp, people will acquire the knowledge and information they need in order to put theory into practice. This gives farmers who are struggling financially the ability to try regenerative techniques, thanks to the voluntary manual labour, and gives people valuable experience in landscape restoration.

Ecosystem Restoration Camps has the potential to give millions of people around the world the chance to reconnect with the natural world, causing ripple effects as they bring this knowledge and connection back into towns and cities across the globe.
