Regenerative Accelerator Program

Holistic Management Canada empowers farmers to make ecologically, economically and socially sound decisions for their farms and communities. We are excited to this continue initiative through funding from the Manitoba Heritage Habitat Corporation Conservation Trust.

The Regenerative Accelerator Program sets out to speed up the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices on farms in Manitoba.

Get planning support: Experts in Holistic Management will work with you on selecting a project that fits with the goals of your farm and the context you are work in.

Get project expertise: Holistic Management Canada will cover the cost to hire experts to assess and support the implementation of your regenerative project.

Get project funding: Participating farms will receive money to cover a portion of the costs of implementing their regenerative project. Money available for the project is dependent on the total project costs.

Get science-based data: Learn about how the ecosystem processes on your farm are working and how your management can improve it. We’ll baseline each participating farm using the Savory Institute’s Ecological Outcome Verification program.

This fall, we will be selecting ten farms across Manitoba to participate in the Regenerative Accelerator Program. In the winter of 2021-2022, participants will work with Holistic Management educators on goal setting and project planning. Farmers will work with the project coordinator to hire consultants (if needed) and implement projects on the ground in 2022. On-farm Ecological Outcome Verification data collection will take place in 2022 along with opportunities for training in ecological monitoring.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for farmers that:

  • have an understanding of the principles of regenerative farming
  • have a passion for ecological improvement
  • have a desire to learn and support the learning of fellow farmers
  • have some experience with Holistic Management training or practices
