First Urth Eco project live!

Urth has its first eco project up and running!

As the earth dries up in Northern NSW our first eco-farmers, a Victorian farming family that has been in sheep genetics since the 1860’s, has taken the Urth investment funds together with their own and gone up to friends in Northern Australia that are clients of their sheep genetics stricken by the drought, to buy what sheep he can off them as they are so close to being unable to support their stock. He has transported the sheep down to lands he has recently taken over that still hold feed and he intends to use the animals to regenerate the land. Although below the quality he would normally keep his stock he knows he has enough to feed the animals and that they will enable him to start the regeneration process over the next 2-3 years.

 See here the reduced quality in the body of the sheep. (see at bottom for comparison)

Using these animals as well as cows to propagate the soil and return the microbes and plants to full health we will track his progress to show you what can be done. This process is so that the farmer can sequester the atmospheric carbon we are all emitting both in the city and in industry and begin the restoration life cycle that affects moisture absorption and retention.

Holistic, viable, sustainable farming using knowledge and where possible, large herds of grazing animals, Urth regards as a genuine climate solution. Where possible Urth seeks to support the farmer to incorporate regeneration of habitats for wildlife from our investment strategies with your help.

 electric fencing is used to quietly and systematically move the herd over the soil to ensure manure is evenly distributed. Weekly satellite images confirm if the action has been successful.

Our farmer has a track record of soil regeneration and it is only the unusual set of circumstances that had him de-stock due to a farm injury that has made it possible for Urth to have the opportunity to be a apart of this regeneration process.

We will be taking regular samples of the soil and tracking his progress using state of the art blockchain verified technologies pending the state at which it progresses which will be weather dependant. Due to the run down state of the soil it may take longer. All farm progress is rain dependant but regenerative, good soil practices are far higher in drought resistant.

No matter what the farmer does we all must work to mitigate our destruction of the atmosphere to hep restore the climate order, or the farmer will not be able to produce food for us or our starvation will no longer be a third world story.

introduction to the Founder, Samantha Jewel and her passion

introducing Samantha Jewel

This is just a headsup that I am going to do a series of podcasts on crypto and agriculture. The first is just an intro on me as the Founder and the journey from agriculture to blockchain part 1!

Although I am not covering this bit in the video, basically I am trying to keep these stories short as my story is long…

I have a unique background as a still practising marble and glass artist and daughter of the founding restaurant chain in Australia in 1965 that caused me to serve people most of my life and grow to care about human health through food which in turn led to agriculture, health and the climate. I have over 20 years of education in the space and a growing education in blockchain due to an immersed startup experience in Europe in 2017/2018 and then going on to learn the code of Etherium thought the blockchain centre coders course in Melbourne in Feb/ March 2018.
