Charity that works to regenerate soil
Regenerating soil is one of the most important actions to be taken in the face of climate change. DIRT regenerates soil through supporting the biodynamic farming movement.
The current agricultural system is not working. Millions of climate migrants are already seeking refuge outside their homelands due to drought caused by agricultural irrigation. Tonnes and tonnes of chemicals are seeping into our water systems, about half of them from agricultural chemicals deliberately sprayed on fields. The carbon dioxide released from soil by poor agricultural practice is causing the ice caps to melt. All of these things are happening in large part because our soils have been degraded by conventional farming techniques. We need a system change in agriculture, and DIRT is working toward the adoption of biodynamic farming to grow everything we need, including food for our kitchens, fibre and leather for our fashion, wood for our buildings and herbs for our medicines. Everything we need is grown in soil, and we could grow it in a way that supports the regeneration of the Earth.
