Have you heard the phrase "The solution is in the soil" ? Well, if you haven't today is your most lucky day! We are going to make a bold statement here, but our Earth is losing life and Climate Change is REAL! NASA says, "The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 11,700 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives."
We believe the solution to this global issue is the very thing we take for granted, our soil! Soils are complex mixtures of minerals, water, air, organic matter, and countless organisms that are the decaying remains of once-living things. It forms at the surface of land – it is the “skin of the earth.” Soil is capable of supporting plant life and is vital to life on earth. So, if enough of us adopt Soil Regeneration we can sequester enough carbon to keep the oceans from acidifying and combat the Climate Crisis! How amazing is that??? You see when it comes to agriculture, climate change is doing what it does best: exacerbating existing problems to the point of crisis. But if you are using regenerative methods and not disturbing the soil, we can mitigate climate change effects by building organic matter. And the more organic matter you have in the soil, the more water-holding capacity you have. Not only does adopting regenerative agriculture practices help us deal with current climate change but impacts by making our planet more resilient and adaptive to what is happening; it allows us to take action to fight long-term by being part of a larger solution to the climate crisis, through carbon sequestration.
