THE MOONACRES SOIL PROJECT
Beneath our feet, literally beneath our feet, is an unexplored universe, a biological world that lives symbiotically with the plants that constitute our entire terrestrial food system. This ‘hidden half’ of horticulture is the mirco biota that lives in and constitutes soil.
Modern conventional agriculture at best ignores this world, but more usually poisons or otherwise destroys it. The soil project is an attempt to unleash it. To work in harmony with it, allowing it to create an environment in which our food plants thrive, where they verily vibrate with the vitality embodied in a healthy living soil.
At this stage we have very little idea of how we are going to do this. Just a naive enthusiasm to learn, and a vague feeling that there are some big secrets to discover in this hidden wolrd beneath our feet. Join us as we get into the soil and try to figure out how to grow food that feeds not only people, but the very soil in which it is grown.
