Do not fall into the narrative trap where you imagine owning an electric car or a new boiler is going to save us from climate change. We as a planet emit 130 billion tonnes of carbon a year. We draw down 120 billion tonnes through existing biological systems such as trees, plants, and microbes. This… Read more »

What is Clay? – Soil pt. 4
Often seen as a complex component of soils for growers, at a very basic level clays are essentially little bits of rock and minerals/silicates. Unlike the previous two major components of the worlds’ soils, clay contains a slight electrical charge, we will discuss the possible fallouts and benefits of this as we progress this blog.… Read more »
Preparing Water for Microbes
