Healthy soils are essential to life…
What is so important about soils? We don’t always see how they work, but healthy soils play a critical role in human health and happiness. They support us to produce nutrient-rich food. They help provide ecosystem services like clean water and air. Healthy soils also retain water and promote biodiversity. Not only that, they help to regulate the earth’s climate and store more carbon than all of the world’s forests combined.
But Australia has an alarming problem. Two thirds of our soils have disappeared since European settlement.
The good news is regenerative agriculture helps restore our soils. At Soils for Life, we support farmers and land managers across Australia who are successfully implementing these regenerative practices and profile them so that everyone can learn from their experiences. Read more about what we do.
