Regenerative farming, CanterburyTe whakahoutanga o te mahi pāmu ki Waitaha

Healthy soil helps the environment, so farmers in Canterbury are changing the way they farm, and sharing the knowledge with other farmers in the community, even old hands! 


Ka ora te oneone, ka ora hoki te taiao, nā reira kei te tini ngā kaipāmu o Waitahi i ā rātou mahi pāmu. Kei te tuku atu hoki rātou i ēnei mātauranga ki ngā kaipāmu o tō rātou hapori – ki ngā ihuoneone hoki!

Planting mixed species helps to feed the soil as well as the cattle. Healthy, covered soil stores more carbon dioxide and can cut the nitrogen in half. This will help the paddocks to stay lush for longer – the bees love it, too.
