Jonny & JD present…the Soil Food Web

Better for Growers, Better for Planet

We have adopted the Soil Food Web approach to growing food & land care, we have observed the following in our growing operations & other operations using this approach. 

  • Increased Yields
  • Protection from Pests and Diseases
  • Reduced Irrigation Requirements
  • No need for Fertilizers
  • Weed Suppression
  • Protection against Soil Erosion
  • Carbon Sequestration
  • Protection of Insects 

The Soil Food Web Approach has been used to successfully restore the ecological functions of soils on six continents. The courses offered by Dr. Elaine’s™ Soil Food Web School have been designed for people with no relevant experience – making them accessible to individuals who wish to retrain and to begin a meaningful and impactful career in an area that will help to secure the survival of humans and other species.

Connect the Dots:

When we feed the grand symbiotic partnership between a plant and the soil microbiome, it ripples through to the human diet—and our own bodies—in profound ways. The reality is that our well-being depends on what the microbiomes in the soil and the gut eat. And this calls for re-thinking the practices that currently underpin two of humanity’s greatest endeavors—agriculture and medicine.

Pesticides kill indiscriminately and are linked to the recent reduction in bee populations. Birds and small animals that feed on insects are also under threat…and so on.

By negating the use of pesticides and other toxic chemicals, such as herbicides, the Soil Food Web approach can be employed to mitigate the threat of ecological collapse.

“The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone.

Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter. – Bill Mollison
