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, have 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 they can off them as they are so close to being unable to support their stock in these times. They have transported the sheep down to lands recently taken over, that still hold feed and they intend to use the animals to regenerate the land.
Although below the quality they would normally keep stock they know they have enough to feed the animals that will enable them to start the regeneration process over the next 2-3 years.
Using these animals as well as cows to propagate the soil and return the microbes and plants to full health we will track the 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.
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 part of this regeneration process.
We will be taking regular samples of the soil and track the progress using state of the art, blockchain verified, technologies pending the progress 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 help restore the climate order, or the farmer will not be able to produce food for us so that our own starvation does not join the ranks of being a third world story.
