Regen Network is a global team comprised of talented, inspiring, and hardworking individuals from all walks of life. Geographically spread from California to Finland, with talent ranging from decades of coding to deep-rooted permaculture wisdom, our team unites around the dream to reverse anthropogenic climate change while empowering small family farmers and incentivizing ecological revitalization.
Our project is run on blockchain, but we are fueled by society and the environment. At our very core, we are about the people contributing to a regenerative world. We are about connection, collaboration, and community.
