What’s So Sexy About Soil?

What does carbon look like when it is pulled out of the sky and sequestered into the land?

The high carbon soil sample on the left comes from a pasture where rotational mob grazing is practiced – meaning cattle and sheep are grazed for one day and them moved on to a fresh camp the next day, leaving behind all their dung and urine. That land is only grazed again after 3 months of regrowth.

The low carbon sample on the right comes from a land where grains are grown with commercial farming. The difference in colour representing the carbon captured by the soil is quite staggering. You can literally see why it is so important to manage farm land responsibly.
