Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin has been transforming agricultural systems using regenerative practices since 1988. Agriculture is the source of the world’s water pollution, loss of soil productivity, and at least one third of global gas emissions – some up to 300 times more toxic than carbon dioxide. Regi is on a mission to empower farmers – 500M of whom globally produce 70% of the world’s food, on 25 acres of land or less – to play a viable role in a productive regenerative food system. With his new effort, Tree-Range Farms Inc., he is using a regenerative agricultural system based on indigenous traditions to transform the $50B + poultry industry. With the right support, small-scale farms can alleviate rural poverty, hunger and decrease agriculture’s role in causing climate change.
Reginaldo Haslett-Marroquin began working on economic development projects with indigenous Guatemalan communities in 1988. He served as a consultant for the United Nations Development Program’s Bureau for Latin America and as an advisor to the World Council of Indigenous Peoples. Regi is an owner and co-founder of Tree-Range Farms Inc. and Founder and Former President of the Regenerative Agriculture Alliance. Regi was awarded a prestigious lifetime Ashoka Fellowship in 2018 for his work in Regenerative Poultry Systems, which is at the center of a multitude of national and international initiatives. Regi authored “In the Shadow of Green Man”, My Journey from Poverty and Hunger to Food Security and Hope.
