Eat less meat
Meat production can only be sustainable on a small scale, in farms with closed nutrient cycles. Intensive cattle raising leads to large-scale imports of soya and corn, which in turn leads to industrial farming, soil degradation and loss of natural habitats in South-America.

Garden organically and soil-friendly
In your own garden, use only natural inputs. Don't use chemical pesticides or fertilizers. For a summary of things you can do as a gardener or farmer, check out this blog page by Wellgardening.

Start composting
Your kitchen and garden waste can become a source of soil fertility, instead of being dumped in a landfill and taken out of our food chain forever. Keep the circle of life and nutrients going round!

Raise awareness in your own circle of influence
Forward this website to people you know and discuss the issue of soil with them. It's all about awareness!

Become an urban gardener
If you live in the city, you can become an urban gardener. As urban inhabitants, we make up 50% to 705 of the earth’s population. Urban Gardeners want to reconnect with their food sources, nature's cycles and the environment. Here are some useful websites to inspire you: www.cityplot.org - www.growvideos.com - www.redwormcomposting.com.
