Mission and Vision
2015 was the United Nations Year of Soil. But also this year we need everybody’s support to promote the importance of healthy, living soils and to allow farmers to share their practical experience to maintain and develop soil fertility.
The objective of the Save our Soils Fund is to support farmers worldwide to save and develop their soils in a healthy, sustainable way.
In particular the Save our Soils Fund will share expertise and promote the outcomes of the following activities:
- Workshops and practical training on soil fertility and soil health for farmers worldwide
- Monitoring and documentation of existing sustainable soil management practices; reviewing and sharing them as best practice guideline
- Practical research projects on selected topics related to soils
- Assessment and communication of the socio economic and true cost benefits of sustainably managed soils
- Liaison with like-minded organizations to promote the importance of soils to a wider audience
To realize the promotion and documentation of these planned activities, the Save our Soils Fund requires a minimum of 500.000 € between 2015 – 2017. You can support the Save our Soils Fund by making a donation.
