Located on the 1100 hectare farm of La Junquera in Murcia, Spain, a region characterized by a semi-arid climate and sparse population, the Regeneration Academy sees education as one of the key leverage points to co-creating the future of food and farming. This young organization offers a transdisciplinary learning environment and range of activities working with students, entrepreneurs, rural communities and organizations connected to regenerative agriculture and ecosystem restoration. The four-month Regenerative Agriculture Research Program offers positions to 12 students who would like to combine their thesis/internship with an on-farm learning opportunity on regenerative agriculture.
