Saving the planet only takes a handful of Jocelyn's Soil Booster
It’s no secret that Jocelyn’s Soil Booster is a powerful, effective way of growing healthy, happy, fruitful plants. But our product has another key benefit that has us just as excited as the thought of helping you grow the perfect tomato: Jocelyn’s Soil Booster can help reverse climate change.
We know: it’s a big, bold claim! But we’ve got the science to back it up. Jocelyn’s Soil Booster, because it contains worm castings, is a tool of regenerative growing — a closed-loop system that seeks to go beyond sustainability, into actively removing excess carbon from the atmosphere. To do this, regenerative growers have their focus primarily on one key part of our planet: dirt.
Rather, soil — or, more specifically, soil health, which is the primary principle of regenerative growing. Regenerative agriculture focuses on restoring topsoil health as a way of ensuring soil can grow healthy, CO2-trapping plants, while acting as a carbon sink itself. Our planet’s soil is currently severely degraded due to decades of mismanagement: irresponsible agricultural practises, including monocropping (growing the same plant, on the same plot, year after year), and the use of chemical and synthetic fertilizers have resulted in soil that contains fewer nutrients, grows poorer plants, and burns off carbon.
To understand how soil can act as a carbon sink, we first need to understand the power of humus, which is the organic component of soil, made up of decomposed food and plant matter. Humus, which is the byproduct of healthy, biodiverse soil, is made of up to 60% carbon, and can store that carbon for thousands of years, making it a hugely effective — and powerful — tool in fighting climate change. In order to be turned into humus, the organic matter in soil needs to be processed by a variety of microbes, many of which are present in Jocelyn’s Soil Booster. Without the microbes that are present within the worm castings, the work of creating more humus can’t be done. Without these essential microbes, in other words, there is no humus.
The microbes in Jocelyn’s Soil Booster multiply once they are added to the soil. They fill any missing gaps in the ecosystem’s natural production system, and so more and more humus is made over time. So when you add Jocelyn’s Soil Booster to your garden, you’re effectively turning your soil into a potent carbon sink — and one that will continue to fight the climate crisis more efficiently over time.
Change doesn’t happen overnight. But a little goes a long way in helping to bring soil back to its climate change-fighting state. Because they are rich in humus and beneficial microbes, worm castings immediately rebuild soil’s natural structure, and return vital biodiversity into the ground below our feet. The goal is getting soil back to the healthy, microbe-rich, carbon-trapping state it was in only a couple hundred years ago — a state in which it can effectively reverse the ill effects chemical agriculture has had on the soil that forms the foundation of our planet. Jocelyn’s Soil Booster can help achieve that goal.
Regenerative agriculture isn’t a new idea, but it’s picking up steam among home gardeners. Regenerative growing is a cornerstone of Jocelyn’s Soil Booster’s mission statement — we truly believe our product can help reverse the effects of climate change.
