At the 2018 San Diego Food Tank Summit, Michelle Lerach, Josh Henretig, Ryland Engelhart, and more talk about the possibilities of science, agriculture, and technology for the future of sustainability.
A new study comparing the carbon sequestering potential of organic soil vs. soil from conventional farming reveals that organic soil is able to store significantly larger amounts of carbon for longer. Can organic farming help combat climate change?
Tucker of Kiss the Ground shares the importance of soil carbon sequestration and soil health for the wellbeing of humanity and the environment.
The SmartSOIL (Sustainable farm management aimed at reducing threats to SOILs under climate change) project brought together researchers and professionals from various universities and institutes in Europe to develop options to increase soil organic carbon.
