Australian Hemp Seed, Food & Fibre Company - Forming Strategic Partnerships, Developing Seed/Fibre Industry & Growing Co-operatives Globally.
Demonstrating world’s best practice agricultural growing standards
Broadleaf provides assistance for farms to become more drought proof, resilient and profitable by creating diversified cultivation portfolios supported by world’s best practice agricultural growing standards.
At Broadleaf Hemp, our vision is to create a new agricultural model based on environmental respect, social fairness and leaving a legacy for future generations! Growing hemp uses significantly less water than traditional food crops, requires little to no artificial sprays or fertilisers and pulls carbon out of the atmosphere to sequester it in the ground!
We hope that our model inspires farmers across the globe to switch to more sustainable, environmentally friendly farming practices to grow better food, better soils and healthier, happier people!
At Broadleaf we see a need for all business to be conducted in a more regenerative mindset in order to be sustainable into the future. All of our business decisions are driven by our ethics which allows us to ensure that our operations are environmentally sound, socially just and improve the environment for generations to come. We call this Ethonomics.
Hemp as a phytoremediator restores balance to soils enabling large scale restoration of essential fungal, bacterial and carbon content in soils leading to large scale soil remediation via the regenerative farming techniques utilised by all of the farms that we work with.
Redefining Natural Resources | The land and natural resources which provide our livelihood and food supply are precious assets common in value to all life, human, animal and botanical.
Ethonomics ensures they are protected by transitioning industries to more sustainable practices.
Redefining Interdependence | The Ethonomic model is designed to redefine personal, industrial and generational relationships to the natural environments that produce our resources and the methods in which we access them.
Broadleaf has seen that the booming hemp industry can be, if properly actioned, an unprecedented opportunity to lay the foundations for a truly sustainable, regenerative marketplace.
The end result is happier people, beautiful, fertile soils alive with microorganisms.
Increased abundance for cropping.
Regeneration of natural ecosystems for native vegetation and animals.
A redefinition of value that considers future generations and social justice.
Doing business that not only feels good, but does good.
Ensuring a habitable planet, rich in biodiversity for all generations to come.
MORE SUSTAINABLE LAND AND WATER MANAGEMENT PRACTICES
Regenerative farming provides better returns while restoring biodiversity to ecosystems and cropping rotations. We employ natural organic inputs and environmentally sound pest and weed management strategies to keep farming costs down and restore diversity to soils.
Hemp is a phytoremediator and uses around 1/3 the amount of water of traditional grain crops and significantly less water than other forms of protein production for the human consumption market.
Broadleaf helps to create resilient drought mitigation strategies allowing farmers to maximise water use efficiency while retaining more water in local ecosystems.
HEMP RESTORES SOILS BY PHYTOREMEDIATING
Hemp as a phytoremediation | Regenerative farming practices restore bacterial and fungal networks in the soil which provides greater growth capabilities to all plants.
Phytoremediation from Ancient Greek meaning ‘plant’, and Latin remedium, meaning ‘restoring balance’)
Hemp is a C4 carbon absorber which pulls Co2 out of the atmosphere and sequesters it in the soils and products of the hemp plant. Hemp has over 26,000 known industrial uses all of which store and sequester carbon from the atmosphere.
The carbon can be turned into the soil restoring the soils carbon content, providing organic materials which allow it to hold water and make nutrients in the soil available to plants and providing a home for bacteria. Carbon is an essential part of soil health.
The future is green.
We are looking at growth in the Hemp industry in 50 years from now and aligning our pathway towards the future.
We envisage a socially just, sustainable future that is fair for all.
