Nature is the fantastic factory that makes the building blocks of all our lives—food, drinking water, the stuff we own and the air we breathe. That’s why The Nature Conservancy and its 1000+ scientists have created Nature Lab: to help students learn the science behind how nature works for us and how we can help keep it running strong.
Less Harm on the Farm: Regenerative Agriculture
Food is more than something we eat to survive; it's a part of how we thrive. Learn how regenerative agriculture can help us feed a growing population while restoring nature. Farmers and scientists show us how, together, we can turn one of today's biggest challenges into our greatest opportunity: a food system that goes beyond sustainability and creates positive growth for communities and the planet.
