Farming Matters | 31.1 | March 2015
This issue of Farming Matters presents the experiences of farmers who are working successfully, together with others, to improve the health of their soil and their lives. The stories on these pages show that healthy soils increase farmers’ autonomy and long-term productivity. And, healthy soils also contribute to climate change adaptation and mitigation.
We see that farmers are making use of local resources to build soil carbon, and in the process they are reducing their dependence on external inputs.This issue makes a call to listen to farmers and learn from their experiences on the land.
