Farmland Restoration

Solutions Journalism Network

Solutions journalism is news about how communities and organizations are responding to social and environmental problems. This collection contains solutions stories that feature a number of restoration strategies already underway. In Ethiopia, "re-greening" techniques are turning previously unproductive land into productive, sustainable agricultural land. In Oaxaca, Mexico, indigenous farmers follow ancient customs to regenerate land, conserve resources, and promote community health. A newly developed perennial grain could restore soil nutrients and trap carbon, offering a low-maintenance alternative to farmers. And in the aftermath of hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, community farmers used the opportunity to reimagine their agricultural system and increase productivity.
