Rodale Institute announced April 21, 2014 the launch of a global campaign to generate public awareness of soil’s ability to reverse climate change, but only when the health of the soil is maintained through organic regenerative agriculture. The White Paper, Regenerative Organic Agriculture and Climate Change, discusses the reversal of the greenhouse effect through a switch to widely available and inexpensive organic management practices, termed ‘regenerative organic agriculture.’
Regenerative organic agriculture is comprised of organic practices including: cover crops, residue mulching, composting and crop rotation.
The live chat begins on Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 11 a.m. PDT / 2 p.m. EDT, where we come together with green industry experts and fellow landscaping peeps each week to discuss all things related to the landscape, since 2011. Join @CoronaTools#landscapechat co-partner @RodaleInstitute Compost Specialist Rick Carr for this week's important topic: How Organic Farming can Reduce Climate Change.
We are at the most critical moment in the history of our species, as man-made changes to the climate threaten humanity’s security on Earth. But there is a technology for massive planetary geo-engineering that is tried and tested and available for widespread dissemination right now. It costs little and is adaptable to local contexts the world over. It can be rolled out tomorrow providing multiple benefits beyond climate stabilization. It is farming.
