HOW WE STARTED
We joined together as a group of scientists and entrepreneurs who worked to establish an all-natural agricultural fertilizer venture. As we were developing that venture, we came to realize that large problems exist with our soils. This vital ecosystem is disappearing. Over the past 40 years, 30% of the world’s arable land has become degraded and unproductive. We learned that degraded soils contribute to other environmental problems, including water and air pollution. As a result, we are losing our ability to grow enough food to satisfy our growing population. We are negatively impacting entire ecosystems. As we were having conversations with others about this, we came to recognize that there exists a lack of public awareness regarding our soil problems and that there was a community of people across the globe that wanted to help but did not quite know how.
