The mineral rich soil that served as the model for Working Lands soil was developed over ten years of careful testing in a large greenhouse environment in Northern Virginia. The final soil formula is extremely rich in organic matter and key nutrients that are vital for animal and human health, and for high yield.
Working Lands achieved several major accomplishments in the development of its soil as well as in field trials in 2017-2018.
Analysis conducted by Waypoint Analytical Lab of Richmond, Virginia.
Working Lands Soil and Water is acquiring currently low-value, depleted farmland to restore to full productivity using our regenerative model. This will drive a strong increase in operating income and margins, add CO2e credit revenue, and build capital appreciation resulting from improved farm profitability, soil rent, and ultimately – farm resale value.
This final phase will be dedicated to expanding our Working Lands regenerative agriculture program to farmers around the world through a network of regional co-ops that will train and support farmers.
Working Lands will help measure and document the carbon being sequestered by all these farmers, and aggregate and sell the carbon credits, passing the majority of this income back to the farmers.
