As some of you may know, for a while now I’ve been studying Sustainability. and how interconnected we are to nature’s cycles.
I would like to see Regenerative Farming to become main stream as I’ve been learning how it can be a significant solution to solve the greatest challenge of our time: climate change.
Regenerative agriculture has the possibility to balance our climate. Building healthy soil has the miraculous ability to sequester carbon from the atmosphere. It’s not just carbon storage; the ways that soil stands to positively impact lives of billions worldwide are tangible and immediate; clean water, healthy food, drought resistance and restored habitats.
Our current agricultural system is causing such severe soil degradation that some estimates suggest that we have less than 60 years of harvests left. With an aging farmers population (the average age of farmers and ranchers being over 60 years old) there is a lack of the younger generation and their innovative characteristics.
Kiss the Ground is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate and inspire people to participate in restoring soils. Kiss the Ground’s Young Farmer Regenerative Agricultural Training Fund provides farmers 40 and under with scholarships to apply to courses such as the Regenerative Farming and Ranching Course taught by Soil Health Academy. Young farmer scholarship recipients will learn how to utilize the latest principles and practices to regenerate soil as well as increase crop yields and lower input costs. Regenerative soil building techniques work in alignment with natural systems and include: keeping the soil covered, having living roots in the ground, diversifying crops, minimizing soil disturbance, reducing chemical inputs and properly managing animals.
There is a growing movement of farmers and ranchers who are ecologically minded and understand that soil isn’t just a growing medium, it’s alive. We need to give them as much support as we can to help them regenerate soils, because building soil means moving carbon from the atmosphere into the ground.
