With the funding goal, we can plant 50,000 trees and shrubs and take good care of them. – To create an abundant, agricultural ecosystem.
Our civilization poses a real threat to biodiversity, soil fertility, climate and global ecosystems. The current generation decides by its actions whether our children will have a future worth living. How do we deal with this?
To solve this problem we need to regenerate soils and ecosystems!
While the forest is the naturally predominant ecosystem in Central Europe, regenerative agroforestry offers a solution to work with the natural principles of a forest ecosystem while growing diverse, nutritious food.
We, the farming community of the Hof Lebensberg, have a great vision:.
We want to create a species-rich, agricultural ecosystem. In doing so, we support soil fertility by actively building up humus. At the same time, we protect the climate, close water cycles and produce a large variety of food.
We are building a practical and model farm with a variety of the world's most successful methods of regenerative agriculture - to bring life back to the land and to be a source of inspiration for many other farmers and landowners!
Together with your support we can make an important contribution to climate protection and the urgently needed agricultural turnaround!
Woody plants play an essential part in this - also on the field! They provide deep rooting, humus build-up and habitat. At the same time, the edible woody plants provide valuable food. This winter we are planting a multi-layered, diverse fruit agroforestry system (e.g. with apples, pears, quinces, chokeberries, autumn olives and nashi pears).
⭐ With your support, we want to plant 50,000 trees and shrubs this winter. - Every tree counts!
Application & spreading of regenerative methods
OUR TARGET GROUP:
Together with your support we can make another important showcase. Humans can regenerate ecosystems, actively combat the climate crisis and species extinction, and grow healthy food at the same time!
This is not about us as individuals, but about our common goal of a future worth living for future generations as well.
⭐ If you also want to make a positive contribution to active climate protection, you can help us plant many trees again!
With your financial support, we will plant 50,000 trees and shrubs this winter!
In addition to the plants themselves, the sum allows us to enrich the very depleted soil with high quality compost and rock flour, so that the young plants can also grow well. In addition, the rows of trees are covered with wood chips so that the soil is better protected from drying out. Since we want to protect the young trees in case of drought, the sum also includes drip irrigation.
We will plant the trees in plenty working hours in wind and weather and take care of them in the years to come. This is our contribution for future generations. All this is only possible with your support!
Here is a detailed overview of the costs:
⭐ Help us to show that the production of our food can be climate positive and good for the environment!
⭐ In return for your donation we offer exciting rewards and hope that everyone will find something suitable!
We at Hof Lebensberg are a group of people with expertise in agriculture, forestry, environmental science, conservation, sustainability, education, food processing, composting and more, who combine all their experience, courage and will for a regenerative culture, agriculture and society.
The farm Hof Lebensberg is dedicated to regenerative agriculture and, as a model and showcase farm, aims to inspire politicians, farmers and other interested parties to combine climate protection, agriculture and nature conservation.
