This weekend was World Soil Day, a call we should all heed to push for a real change to our agricultural systems. Soil regeneration is an integral part of ecosystem restoration and carbon sequestration–an urgent piece of the solution to the climate crisis–not to mention food production for the billions of humans on Earth. And yet, industrial agricultural and our frenzied consumption of the earth's resources are degrading our topsoil at a dangerous pace.
Read our latest blog post: World Soil Day Should Be a Call to Change How We Grow Food. And be sure to share. Let's not let the false solutions of more tech and grazing drown out our voices.
This Saturday, our webinar will dig deeper into the importance of soil regeneration and how agriculture constitutes the prime area for this focus. We will be joined by Dr. Amir Kassam, a conservation agriculture expert whose many roles include Moderator of the UNFAO-hosted Global Platform for Conservation Agriculture Community of Practice. We are also joined by Helen Atthowe, an agroecological farmer and researcher with decades of experience in various parts of the United States. Helen's farm was recognized with a Steward of Sustainable Agriculture Award at the 32nd Annual EcoFarm Conference.
