People are waking up to the importance of the soil. Soil fertility is vital for human health, resilient communities and strategies for combating climate change.

But most people don’t talk about soil and money in the same breath.

Since 2010, tens of thousands of us in dozens of communities have begun supporting local food enterprises that are building healthy soil. Through public meetings large and small, local networks, and lots of peer-to-peer learning, we’ve steered more than $57 million into 632 soil-building food enterprises.
