Soil Health and Carbon Sequestration

What do healthy soils and environmentally friendly farming practices have to do with climate change, food quality, and food security?

How can farming practices help control climate change while also increasing food quality and food security?

Did you know?
  • About 95% of our food comes directly or indirectly from soil.
  • One handful of soil contains billions of living organisms, and there are more organisms in the soil than above ground.
  • Earth's soil contains more carbon than is contained in the atmosphere and all plant life combined.
  • We can increase soil carbon, and reduce atmospheric carbon, through farming practices.
Citizen Science Soil Health Project

Our farm is participating in the Citizen Science Soil Health Project, a 10 year long project to help Colorado Front Range growers prove they are improving their soil.
