 Gentle Farming

Supporting regenerative agriculture in the UK
Much more than just soil carbon offsets.

Garden Soil

Soil.

Soil is one of the most overlooked natural ecosystems. It supports all life on earth.


It has huge potential to sequester and store atmospheric carbon. 

The amount of carbon in the soil is directly linked to the SOM (Soil Organic Matter) content. 

If we increase soil organic matter we are increasing soil carbon levels.

In UK farmland organic matter levels have been falling due to poor farming practices. This is a trend that urgently needs to be reversed.


Soil has the solution to our climate crisis.

Farming systems with higher soil carbon levels will: 

  • Have higher nutrient densities in the food it grows and therefore the food we eat 

  • Contribute to national food security 

  • Increase biodiversity of soil ecosystems which supports above ground diversity such as insects and birds 

  • Have higher quality landscapes to improve the well being of society

  • Reduce flood risk and improve water quality

  • Sequester and store atmospheric carbon

Carbon offsetting in soil. 

The soil carbon is certified to ISO standard 14064 meets IPCC (independent governmental panel on climate change) guidelines and is independently verified by a 3rd party. The system is block chain secured.
