An Agriculture Conference for Belizean Farmers

Reginaldo Marroquin

The first annual Tropical Agriculture Conference is being held at the National Agriculture and Trade Show Grounds in Belmopan.  The event hosted by Regeneration International and Regeneration Belize commenced with an opening ceremony on Tuesday afternoon and aims to transform Belize into a leading producer of nutrient-rich agricultural products and a showcase for carbon sequestration through soil regenerative practices.

 

Reginaldo Marroquin, Regeneration International

“Regeneration International is a global network that organizes communities and organizations in conversations about agriculture primarily and the conference is about the power of regenerative agriculture to transform the way we manage soil, natural resources and reincorporate traditional agriculture into a modern way of feeding the world, sequestering carbon and reinstating the health of the soil as the foundation of the productivity of agriculture, but also the regeneration of economics, social and ecological conditions that are better for communities and countries, so the conference is about tackling everything from traditional knowledge that is already here in Belize and folks who are actually trying to promote that, who are actually taking care of the ecology while producing healthy foods and restoring carbon to the soil and becoming part of a global movement.”
