Regenerative Vanua is a Not-for-Profit organisation formally registered in 2021 as Charitable Organisation under the Charitable Associations (Incorporations) Act [Cap 140] in Vanuatu. Regenerative Vanua's Vision is to "Support resilient and climate smart rural communities by restoring pride in Indigenous food culture through regenerative agritourism & food tourism, regenerative farming and food systems and regenerative landscapes”.
