Agriculture is Facing a Crisis

Farmers and Ranchers around the world are facing huge challenges like…

Nutrient Deficiency Soil fertility is a major problem around the world. This results in lower yields and produce that is nutrient deficient.
Compaction Layers of compacted earth result in soil erosion, making it difficult for plant roots to penetrate deep into the soil profile.
Pests & Diseases It can feel like it’s a never ending battle fighting against all the different critters out there that want to take your crops down.
Drought & Flooding As soil structure and organic matter content are degraded over time, the soil’s ability to infiltrate and hold water is compromised.
Low Crop Yields Many farmers are experiencing diminishing crop yields despite the fact that they are pouring on more and more chemical fertilizer year after year.
Cost of Inputs For many farmers, the costs of chemical inputs seem to rise every year, making it harder and harder to earn a living.

These critical issues, along with demand for ecologically produced foods, are motivating farmers, ranchers, and growers to switch to Regenerative Agriculture.
But they need support to make the transition happen rapidly and effectively… that’s where you can help!

The Soil Food Web Approach: Accelerating Soil Regeneration

You Can Begin a New Career Helping Farms to See Results in Months Instead of Years by Focusing on Soil Biology

The Benefits of the Soil Food Web

When you help growers adopt the Soil Food Web Approach and they start seeing their yields climb while input costs plummet, you become an invaluable asset to their operations. Farms win, you win, and so does the planet!

Improved Soil Fertility
Improved Soil Fertility

With beneficial biology in the soil, plants get to control their own nutrition by exchanging sugary exudates (produced by the plant during photosynthesis) for the nutrients they need, when they need them.

Lower Input Costs, Increased Profits
Higher Profits

Once you restore the natural balance to the soil biome, your clients’ yields will improve and they’ll no longer need to use expensive chemical inputs.

Heal Our Natural Ecosystems
Heal Our Natural Ecosystems

Insect populations are being decimated by 25% every 10 years, worldwide (according to the UN). With the soil biology in place, farmers no longer need to rely on pesticides and other harmful chemicals.

Builds Resilience to Drought and Flood
Builds Resilience to Drought and Flood

Beneficial soil microbes build soil structure, which enables water to better infiltrate clay soils while increasing the water-holding capacity of sandy soils. Increased organic matter is also very important.

Reduces Pest, Disease and Weed Pressure
Higher Profits

Well-nourished plants can better protect themselves against pests. Disease-causing organisms are out-competed, consumed, and inhibited by beneficial organisms. Weeds are selected against.

It’s the biology in the soil that drives the system. By ensuring that the soil biome is in good shape, Farmers, Ranchers, and Growers can see results in months instead of years.

Consultant Success Stories

“Becoming a Soil Food Web Consultant was a life-transforming event for me… clients see the results so quickly... I feel really good about helping change a system into something that’s much more positive. There’s so much work to be done…. The opportunities are endless.”

Brian VaggOwner of Sprouting Soil, Certified Soil Food Web Consultant

“Without the Soil Food Web, we wouldn't have this business. The training we got from Dr. Elaine Ingham... has completely shifted our life path. We’ve actually been able to more than double the price of the normal compost that’s sold in our area..”

Keisha Wheeler & Casey ErnstOwners of Catalyst BioAmendments, Producers of Biological Compost

“I’m working with farmers as well as compost producers…A lot of those clients have come to me via the Soil Food Web Website....What I love most about having these skills... is implementing them with farmers and seeing their reaction to the results. Seeing they can cut back on their inputs drastically and just kind of change the way they think about soil… when the pest pressure falls away and the yields begin to increase… that ultimately makes it all worth it for me.”

She is an independent trainer and curriculum developer for the UN-FAO Farmer Field School Program and the Andhra Pradesh Community Managed Natural Farming Initiative in India. She was one of five speakers at the United Nations-FAO World Soil Day in 2017.

Healthy soil is the fundamental infrastructure that makes life on land possible, but only when it is alive and functions like a sponge. A living “soil sponge” can soak up rain, store and filter water; and provide health, resilience, and thriving economies for the communities that grow from it.

Farmers and communities that create conditions for a soil sponge to grow experience interrelated benefits such as:

  • Healthier crops, animals, and people
  • Abundant clean water
  • Cooler regional temperatures
  • Reduction of wildfire risk
  • Resilience to flood and drought
  • Reduced erosion, dredging, and road repairs
  • Higher farm profitability
  • Prevention of algae blooms and dead zones
  • Cleaner air
  • Increased biodiversity
  • Reduced conflicts over resources
  • Improved local economies
  • Putting atmospheric carbon to work creating landscapes that support all of life.

Topics Covered:

  • Landscapes that Work for All of Life
  • Collaborating with the Essential Workforce of Other Species
  • Measuring Change for Long Term Success
  • Money, Life, and Land
  • Choosing Effective Intervention Points

Participants will gain:

  • a working knowledge of whole systems landscape function
  • an increased ability to evaluate land management decisions, practices, and policies
  • tools to create and lead soil health initiatives in your region
  • a community of practice: deep discussions with people working towards similar aims.
