Meet the superheroes who don’t need to wear capes! These Soil SuperHeroes are farmers and food companies that are saving our soils to bring us healthier food and reverse climate change.
Consumers, policy makers and food companies often think of soil simply as dirt to hold up crops. Learning about the role that healthy soil can play to support human health can change that.
Poor soil stewardship is creating a crisis in top soil available for food production – at the rate we’re going, according to the international Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) we only have 50 years of topsoil left. Because conventional farming practices have released so much carbon from the soil, farming is also fueling climate change. Soil SuperHeroes are working to reverse that damage and turn soil into a carbon sink to store the excess carbon contributing to climate change. We need to regenerate the soil to save farming and to save the planet – SoilSuperHeroes are showing us how.
