Healthy soil should be the number one priority in food. Full stop. If you have an incredible cherry tomato, it’s probably because the soil was full of living things. We learned that the food system contributes about half of global emissions (agriculture 15%, deforestation for food 18%, transportation, storage, processing, waste, etc 17%). We learned food and farming could be a practical solution. Pesticides and GMOs and certifications are all worth noting, but instead of focussing on false binaries, we could focus on actual data and a metric that would reward a farmer making the crucial jump from one per cent (Soil Organic Matter) SOM to two per cent SOM.
