Growing better food is an important part of building healthy food systems. But is growing good food enough? Explore the broad dimensions of our food systems on our cornerstones blog and podcast. Consider why “ending the fight” by building healthy food systems can build health and prosperity throughout our communities.

Actively Growing Microbial Communities are Key to Healthy Soil

When you embrace biological farming, you put billions of little minions (we call them microbes) to work growing solutions for healthy soils.

These little guys store water in the soil.

They destroy pests.

They emit irresistible aromas that attract pollinators and other good insects.

They work 24/7 without asking for pension plans, paid vacations, 401 K’s, or workman’s comp. 

Their only real demands are that you minimize your tillage, and lay off all those “-cides.”.
