This is our presentation at the 9th World Conference on Ecological Restoration.

A workshop about ecosystems using the enquiry method

Alexander Tinti | June 11, 2022

On June 8th, we had the pleasure of organizing a workshop with the local environmental women’s group AGRICOP. Their goal: transforming a hectare of their land into a showpiece for regenerative agriculture.

We are constantly exploring new ways to get people interested about the countless upsides of regenerative agriculture. Rather than simply giving a lecture on the mechanics, we focussed on asking questions to which we then figured out the answers together. In this way, we discussed natural cycles, consequences when interrupting them and ecosystems services, including the provision of clean air, clean water and fertile soils.

It was wonderful to witness how, in an animated Q&A game, the group itself ultimately was providing all the right answers – all we had to do was to ask. We concluded the session with a tour through the Refugio where everyone could observe the practical implementation of the solutions we had discussed before.
