Who knew that growing healthy, beautiful plants starts from the ground up? Ultimately, cultivating healthy soil makes for healthy plants! Within the deep dark earth there is a whole biome filled with micro-organisms, plant matter, and more: a thriving ecosystem going through a rich life cycle.
Soil regeneration is one of the keys to restoring ecosystems. Healthy soil is like a sponge. It creates pathways and channels for micro-organisms to thrive and creates stronger water retention. Through nurturing healthy soil we are contributing to preserving a precious resources; water. Vital soil helps to conserve and filter water, prevent soil erosion, and avoid runoff, which can pollute waterways.
By amending our soil and creating nutrient-rich environments from the ground up, we are investing in one of our biggest allies for slowing down climate change and preventing drought. Creating a strong foundation from the ground helps us to build thriving ecosystems and support biodiversity in our own backyards or patios; from the ground all the way up!
