Soil Health, Water & Climate Change

A Pocket Guide to What You Need to Know

The twin problems of polluted water and climate change share a common solution: the building of soil carbon via farming practices that protect the landscape’s surface and generate biological activity below. That's why the Land Stewardship Project has developed Soil Health, Water & Climate Change: A Pocket Guide to What You Need to Know.

This resource provides an introduction to the latest innovations in science and farming related to building soil health, and how implementing such practices on a wide scale basis can make agriculture a powerful force for creating a landscape that is good for our water and our climate.

This pocket guide provides policymakers, educators, journalists and the general public the basic information needed for developing a framework that supports a thriving soil ecosystem. We invite you to read the short chapters, look at the graphs and get acquainted with the new science and innovative practices that are shaping this movement. And we particularly encourage you to read the sidebar stories on the farmers who are leading the way on building soil health.
