Our mission is to educate and inspire farmers, ranchers, and consumers about the importance of sustainability, regenerative farming, and biodiversity in our food systems.

Building soil health is essential for sustainable agriculture and the long-term productivity of farmland. Soil health refers to the physical, chemical, and biological characteristics of soil that allow it to support plant growth and contribute to overall ecosystem health.

To build soil health, farmers can adopt several practices such as:
  • Conservation tillage: Using tillage practices that minimize soil disturbance and maintain soil structure can help to reduce erosion and maintain soil organic matter levels.

  • Cover cropping: Growing cover crops between cash crops can help to build soil health by adding organic matter and providing habitat for beneficial insects and other soil organisms.

  • Crop rotation: Rotating crops can help to break pest and disease cycles, add organic matter to the soil, and reduce soil compaction.

  • Composting and using compost: Composting organic matter and using compost as a soil amendment can help to improve soil fertility and structure.

  • Using cover crops: Cover crops such as clover, rye, and legumes can help to fix nitrogen in the soil, reduce soil erosion, and suppress weeds.

  • Reducing chemical inputs: Minimizing the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides can help to reduce soil degradation and improve soil health over time.

  • Promoting soil biota: Encouraging a diverse community of soil microbes and insects can help to improve soil health by breaking down organic matter and cycling nutrients.

By adopting these practices, farmers can improve soil health, increase crop yields, reduce the need for inputs such as fertilizer and pesticides, and contribute to a more sustainable agriculture system. Building soil health is not only important for agriculture, but also for maintaining healthy ecosystems and mitigating the effects of climate change.
