Soil Exhaustion

A third of the planet’s land is severely degraded after decades of intensive farming using pesticides, petrochemical fertilisers, or engineered seeds. Physical, chemical, geological and biological collapse often manifest in landslides.

Infertile soil is bereft of nutritional potential, unable to retain storm water and as erosion accelerates chemicals filter into groundwater and oceanic systems eventually entering the food chain. Many of these substances, designed to boost soil fertility, are endocrine disruptors contributing to the current global infertility crisis in humans and animals alike.

CLIMAVORE connects soil biota to the welfare of human and nonhuman guts to establish care networks that cultivate and produce thriving soil through polyculture, reduced tillage, and rotational crops.
