Replicating and scaling up regenerative ocean farms to create jobs and protect the planet

December 2021

GreenWave, the non-profit leader in the field, is working to replicate the regenerative ocean farming model in coastal communities throughout North America to create a blue green economy—built and led by ocean farmers—that ensures we all make a living on a living planet.

Interest in the regenerative ocean farming model continues to expand, with GreenWave fielding requests from a growing pool of more than 8,000 prospective ocean farmers from every coastal state in the United States and 100 countries around the globe. Over the next two years, GreenWave will expand its capacity to deliver farmer training and innovation programming in order to leverage this interest.

BFCT’s grant will be applied by GreenWave to scale up its efforts and support its 10-year goal of providing training, tools to at least 10,000 regenerative ocean farmers to catalyze the planting of one million acres and yield meaningful economic and climate impacts
