A new 4 per 1000 initiative has been started by the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood, and Forestry as the Lima-Paris climate change talks begin. This initiative is focused on getting all the countries involved in the talks to commit to increasing the organic matter on their agricultural lands by .04% to halt climate change. This is the first time there has been an international call and awareness of the importance of soils to sequester carbon.
HMI has joined this initiative formally and will continue our work to help more land stewards improve their soil health through using Holistic Management in managing their lands, finances, and families, and communities. We are proud of our network who is on the front line of this work.
