What is Build Soil?
Build Soil is organizing and motivating community action for earth repair.
Our mission is to inspire and facilitate equitable land-use solutions for climate change, using environmental justice and soil regeneration as our guides.
- advocates for and facilitates community-based regenerative agriculture projects, in order to mitigate harm from ecologically destructive practices and climate change.
- inspires communities to organize locally, building community resiliency and capacity.
- measures projects by how well they promote justice and equity and how well they build and regenerate soil.
- provides education on these topics and more.
Build Soil's pilot project is the Million Chestnut Project, an effort to plant one million edible chestnut trees in order to strengthen communities, combat food scarcity, and lessen dependency on mainstream agriculture.
