Give to the Soil Health Institute

We translate science into action to address real world problems.

Achieving Scale and Impact

Healthy soils are how we feed a growing population; achieve a stable climate and clean environment; sustain farms, rural communities, and landscapes; and provide pollinator and other wildlife habitat. The science is clear. We know how to do this. Your support will help achieve these goals.

The Case for Change


By 2050, our agricultural systems will need to support 9.8 billion people, that’s 2 billion more than today.


In the last century, many of our agricultural soils have lost 40-60% of the basic building block that makes them productive – organic carbon.


Drought is expected to increase from impacting 1% of the world’s arable land to over 30% by the end of the century due to climate change.

We are at a critical juncture in human history where we must address these challenges by transforming agriculture, and soil health is the framework to do just that.
