World’s Soil Day – Don’t Judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.
Elven Agri is a regenerative Sustainable Farm, which means we work with nature to utilize photosynthesis and healthy soil microbiology to bring in greenhouse gases.
This method not only helps save carbon, but also improves the soils water holding capacity, stops soil erosion, protects the purity of ground water and sets up the conditions for crops to become more disease and pest resistant.
“It takes half millennia to build up two centimetre of living soil and seconds to destroy it”,
We believe if we work together, real difference can be made. We have been to many schools to educate children about sustainability and natural organic farming to ensure we have an impact on the future. We have also organized trainings for local farmers to help them understand organic farming and how they will benefit them.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO):
- Soil holds three times as much carbon as the atmosphere and can help us meet the challenges of a changing climate
- 815 million people are food insecure and 2 billion people are nutritionally insecure, but we can mitigate this through soil.
- 95% of our food comes from soil
- 33% of our global soils are already degrade
From the above facts, it’s evident that, each day we are demolishing Mother Nature’s Creation and for what? If there is NO SOIL, there’s no FOOD! We need to take a step back and think about what our future will be like. Organic Farming is the solution!
