Regenerative agriculture in practice, with Richard Perkins and Benedikt Bösel

27 October 2020 @ 19:30 - 20:30

Everyone is talking about regenerative agriculture, and for a good reason: it is directly aimed at increasing soil fertility, and our entire food production stand and falls with the health of our soil. In order to protect and improve it, regenerative agriculture relies on various practices that make the soil more resistant to drought, erosion and heavy rainfall. As it increases the soil quality, i.e. the humus content, it also increases the capacity of the soil to store CO2, making regenerative agriculture a very powerful instrument in dealing with climate change. ⠀

What does regenerative agriculture look like in practice? What obstacles still stand in the way? Find out more October 27, 7:30pm as we speak with Richard Perkins and Benedikt Bösel as part of our Symposium!

Benedikt Bösel, Gut & Bösel


Benedikt Bösel is founder and CEO of Gut & Bösel 1 hour east of Berlin. Benedikt has implemented different forms of regenerative agriculture such as agroforestry, holistic grazing, syntropic agriculture, market gardening and different composting methodologies. Benedikt and his team want to show that these regenerative, multi-functional land-use models can be economically, ecologically and socially beneficial when compared to current exploitative forms of land-use. To speed up the transition towards regenerative agriculture they team up with partners to develop agricultural machines and technology to facilitate a better understanding of complex ecosystems, trying to enable farmers all over the world to become less dependent on external inputs. The estate welcomes around 500 visitors annually to show that agricultue and land-use are the most efficient way to address the worlds most daunting challenges.

Benedikt is engaged in various initiatives around the future of land use, food and rural development. For instance, he sits on the board of Soil Alliance – an association of Regenerative Agriculture as well as is part of the Advisory Board of the German Government for Digitalisation of Agriculture.
