A short conversation with Paul Woebkenberg who is leading the Ecosia’s regen ag investments, their € 500K finance fund for regenerative agriculture.
The Ecosia fund invests in pioneering farming projects anywhere in the world that demonstrate regeneration of soil and financial viability, recreating a healthy, sustainable ecosystem. The goal is to find practices that regenerate the soil and show the world what good alternatives to the currently dominating destructive, animal torturing, climate changing forms of food production look like.
In 2018 Ecosia teamed up with Richard Perkins to run the first round. Two applicants received a total of €100,000 investments.
The 2019 annual selection round ends on 15th of December.
