Agro-Perma-Lab was selected by as a candidate for bi-annual LUSH Spring Prize.
This is a £200,000+ prize fund and other support activities, to build capacity for those repairing the earth’s damaged systems and leaving the world lusher than they found it. The diverse panel of judges come from a wide spectrum of movements representing regenerative design, permaculture, food sovereignty, transition, biomimicry and eco-village networks.
Regeneration: theme of 2023
Rather than reducing impacts and maintaining the earth’s damaged systems, the LUSH Spring Prize showcases work that seeks to heal and grow; taking a holistic approach to overcoming environmental, social and economic challenges. You can explore the various meanings of REGENERATIVENESS in the informative guideline document published by LUSH. Download the background paper – Raising the profile of regeneration (PDF).
