Soil Solutions to Carbon Problems

Friday, 4th November 2016

In one handful of soil, there are more organisms than there are humans on Earth.

Soil is vital to our food needs - we rely on 95% of healthy soil for what we eat. It is also important in locking climate carbon to mitigate climate change.

Many solutions to climate carbon have been found, including locking carbon into the soil via plants and photosynthesis, mulching, crop diversity, composting, and carefully planned grazing.
