Mission: We are a non-profit that exists to share The Soil Story, and to promote and implement the rebuilding of soils to improve human and planetary health.
Why We Care: Conventional Agriculture vs. REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE
The #1 Cause of CO2 to the atmosphere is also the #1 solution for reducing carbon from the atmosphere.
Conventional agricultural practices have moved 50-70 percent of carbon once stored in the soil into the atmosphere. This amounts to 65% of all CO2 added to the atmosphere by humans.
Rebuilding soils, using regenerative agricultural practices, like composting and inoculation of micro organisms, brings carbon from the atmosphere back into the soil.
The #1 Reason soil water holding capacity is down 75% is also the #1 Solution for increasing soil’s water holding capacity.
Conventional agriculture has decreased the water holding capacity of the top soil by 75. That means far more water is wasted, farmers loose money, polluted water ways, and lack of water available for plants during droughts.
Rebuilding soils by adding compost (organic mater) increases the water holding capacity of soil. Reducing water needs by 30-75 percent. Adding 1% organic matter allows an acre of land to hold 17,500 more gallons of water.
