Without Plants there is only Dirt!

The relationship between plants and soils is a complex system

All growers are harnessed with their own set of constraints and opportunities

soil conditions, geographic conditions, finances, equipment infrastructure, mineral availability, biological diversity...

Products applied and tools used are all human interventions that effect the relationship between plant and soil

A model is needed to understand the effects of human intervention

enabling productive conversations about sustainably regenerating soils, growing high quality foods and the benefits and short comings of any product, tool or idea that comes along
