The R.A.N.C.H. Project—which stands for Regenerative Agriculture, Nutrition, and Climate Health—actively works to develop and execute a first-of-its-kind method for building topsoil.
Currently, it is on pace to plant a million superfood-bearing trees, vines, shrubs, and plants by the end of 2024.
The R.A.N.C.H. Project will have a booth at Deep Tropics 2023 where attendees can learn about sustainability and even sign up for organized field trips to the project’s Center for Regenerative Agriculture, located in nearby Summertown, Tennessee.
In line with both groups’ shared passion for improving climate health, the field trips will give participants an experiential education in regenerative agriculture and contribute to Deep Tropics’ efforts to offset the festival’s carbon footprint through tree-planting initiatives at the farm.
Fueled by their non-profit organization Deep Culture, Deep Tropics has remarkably diverted 93% of festival waste from landfills and planted over 23,000 trees in 2022.
As Deep Tropics welcomes music fans for its fifth edition, tropical plants grown by the R.A.N.C.H. Project—like Passionfruit and Papaya—will travel to the festival where attendees “will have the chance to interact with, and even taste, the fruits of this collaboration.”
Tickets for Deep Tropics 2023 are available now here.
