Mallorca Preservation and Camper join forces to promote Regenerative Agriculture in Mallorca
We are proud to collaborate with Camper, the Mallorcan family-run footwear company, to support local and sustainable agriculture, and to take a further step in the transition towards regenerative agriculture.
What is regenerative agriculture?
Regenerative agriculture is a set of sustainable agricultural techniques to recondition and reinforce the natural ecosystem by improving soil fertility and the quality of the water cycle. In addition, this method favours the absorption and retention of carbon from the atmosphere, thus reducing the environmental impact of agricultural activity, making it an ally in the mitigation of climate change.
What does the project consist in?
Thanks to the collaboration between MAPF and Camper, theoretical and practical courses have been promoted. They were organised by APAEMA and aimed at professional farmers, technicians and landowners interested in implementing regenerative agriculture on their land. After a few months, individual visits will be made to the farms of some of those attending the courses in order to check the implementation of the techniques learned during the training.
Programme of the Regenerative Agriculture Initiation Project:
- 4 technical workshops. Visits to farms that carry out regenerative agriculture techniques.
- Introduction to RA: 15h course dedicated to non-professional farmers given by Agroasesor
- Holistic management: 20h course dedicated to professional ecological sheep farmers given by Gonzalo Palomo.
