Because our lives are entirely dependent on the health of our soils, the Soil Not Oil Campaign demands the care and regeneration of soils worldwide. We emphasize that extensive restructuring of land management practices, especially agriculture, is key to combating climate change, restoring water cycles, stopping ocean acidification, re-establishing biodiversity, improving food production, and revitalizing local economies across the planet. Furthermore, we recognize that rapidly accelerating human-caused climate change is an imminent threat to urgent action to halt the reckless and expanding fossil fuel industry, which pollutes the ecosystems we depend on and drives climate change, threatening to destabilize our biosphere on a global scale. The Soil Not Oil Campaign's call for integrated action on sustainable practices in all areas of human endeavor is essential to ensuring a safe and healthy world for generations to come.
We know you. You are the ones most ready for change. You are the ones that know there is another way. You are the ones willing to think, look and feel outside of the box. You are the ones willing to ask for help and guidance. You are the ones who know that guidance can come from your own innate genius and wisdom. You are the ones who know we have to do this together.
YOU are the ones bringing the new story to life. Join us in cultivating unity in a divided world, supporting the creation of thriving, resilient communities and living a new world of just, equitable, happy, and healthy people and ecosystems.

Computer modelling used a decade ago to predict how quickly global average temperatures would rise may have forecast too much warming, a study has found. The Earth warmed more slowly than the models forecast, meaning the planet has a slightly better chance of meeting the goals set out in the Paris c...
THURS September 21, 11:00AM PST Extreme Land Restoration 101: Using Soil Biology to Restore Farms, Landscapes, and Ecosytems Back to Life. WEBINAR
Part 3 of the Soil Restoration Series
Dr. Elaine Ingham with Raleigh Latham
REGISTER AT http://www.sustainabledesignmasterclass.com/sdmcingham
Elaine Ingham is the pioneer of Soil Foodweb studies, and the founder of the Environmental Celebration Institute. For nearly 40 years, Dr. Ingham has made the study of soil restoration her life's work. She has helped thousands of clients across the world to restore their lands' soil biology and fertility, so they can reclaim their livelihoods. Elaine is showing the world that it is never too late to restore soil biology, even when the land seems beyond repair.
If you can understand the soil foodweb, then you can break free of the cycle of degredation. Tune in, so you can learn how compost can transform land degraded land back into productive, stable ecosystems. Whether you're a farmer, biologist, gardener, rancher, land manager, or simply interested, this webinar will open your eyes to the potential of compost and soil biology. Join us for this never before seen look into extreme land restoration.
Dr. Elaine Ingham is going to show you...
Never before seen case studies of soil restoration on farms, ranches and landscapes in extreme climates.
Why fertilizers, insecticides, hebicides, and tilling are destroying your soil, and why you don't actually need them.
How uniquely targeted compost treatments can lead to enormous tranformations in productivity, fertility, and environmental recovery on a large scale.
Why your soil contains every mineral and nutrient in abundance, and how soil microbiology in compost can help you access them.
How you can use compost and compost teas on different scales, from a home garden, to a 1000+ acre ranch.
Why restoring soil biology can protect landscapes and farms against extreme weather, drought, heat, and climate chaos.
How you can learn to understand your soil biology and your soil health so you can make the right compost treatments to restore your land.
Why restoring soil biology is profitable in the short and long term.
Drr. Elaine Ingham is recognized around the world as the leader in soil microbiology and research of the soil foodweb.
With decades of experience as a professor, researcher, and soil benefactor consulting in the field she has helped thousands of homeowners, growers, and influential companies understand healthy soil via healthy organisms. Elaine transmits sophisticated information in an easty to understand way.
Her mission is to show that the key to making any plant thrive, from the turf on golf courses to vegetables in the garden to orchard trees is to team up with suitable soil microbes. Dr. Ingham conntects the loop from chemical, biological, to available plant nutrients, and has helped thousands of people across the world restore their soil biology.
