Caring for our farm and producing   food in partnership with nature

Garden Soil

The importance of Soil

It supports all life on earth.

 

It has huge potential to sequester and store atmospheric carbon. 

The amount of carbon in the soil is directly linked to the SOM (Soil Organic Matter) content. 

If we increase soil organic matter we are increasing carbon levels in the soil.

In UK farmland organic matter levels have been falling due to poor farming practices.

This trend urgently needs to be reversed.

Gently managed soils will: 

  • Grow healthier crops which leads to healthier food and healthier people

  • Form the basis of a climate resilient food system

  • Increase biodiversity of soil ecosystems which supports above ground diversity

  • Have higher quality landscapes to improve the well being of society

  • Reduce flood risk and improve water quality

  • Sequester and store atmospheric carbon
