Regenerative Agroforestry is a multifaceted approach to sequestering CO₂, producing nutritious food, and boosting biodiversity. It rapidly captures carbon in biomass and soil, aligning with net-zero emissions goals and the European Green Deal. This method also conserves water, prevents erosion, and regenerates soil, with trees lasting 60 to 400 years.

In Waddinxveen, the soil has a medium carbon storage potential, with baseline samples showing high carbon levels. Research indicates even higher potential over time in forested areas. Located in a highly urbanized region, this site also reduces PM2.5 and nitrogen, benefiting local health. Purchasing our carbon removal credits supports scaling and continuing this work.

About our carbon farmer

Bart's encounter with Life in Syntropy in 2016 proved to be transformative, leading him to realize the potential of agriculture in mitigating climate change by reducing carbon in the atmosphere while simultaneously producing high-quality, biodiversity-positive food.  Driven by his passion to safeguard the environment for future generations, Bart founded Scave, where he delved into scalable regenerative agroforestry practices. Witnessing the success of establishing lands with trees absorbing carbon, he recognizes the correlation between land cultivation and biodiversity.
