Soil for Life - Earth Guardians

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

SOIL FOR LIFE is the new Earth Guardians campaign working to regenerate soil around the world as a tool for local resilience and climate mitigation. In this workshop you will learn about skills to add to your toolbox for soil building and get a sneak peek about the revolutionary testing method, Chromatography. Chromatography offers a portrait of the soil underneath our feet and provides a powerful visual component for remediation efforts. It’s estimated that if we increased carbon in the soil by just 0.4% we could offset 75% of all greenhouse gas emissions, all while providing healthy, organic food to our communities.
