Our partners use regenerative practices in their landscapes across the three zones identified in the 4 Returns Framework: the natural zone, the combined zone, and the economic zone.

For example, in the combined zone, many of our partners use regenerative agricultural practices to help transform damaged landscapes into thriving ecosystems. Commonland promotes regenerative agriculture, which recognises that working with nature, rather than against it, positively impacts a landscape’s health. 

By adopting practices that promote soil health, biodiversity and ecosystem balance, regenerative agriculture seeks to create a harmonious relationship between agriculture and nature, leading to healthier soils, stable yields, and a more resilient landscape.  

There are countless regenerative agriculture practices, and selecting the best ones will depend on the landscape’s unique features and needs – there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. No-till farming, regenerative grazing, and agroforestry are some of the common practices in our landscapes.
