The Living Earth Foundation is a New 501c3 Nonprofit Research and Educational Organization.
Its primary purpose is to explore, discover, and advance the new regenerative organic sciences
designed to cleanse & restore the biological health of the soils, air, water, & ecosystems. It seeks
to achieve these ends through comprehensive research initiatives that bring together leading
biological specialists to pursue site-specific solutions to adverse environmental challenges.
LANDFILL BIOREMEDIATION OF GREENHOUSE GASES
The Living Earth Foundation is the coordinator of a comprehensive bioremediation research
project working in collaboration with the County of Los Angeles and Waste Connections, Inc to test
the efficacy of specialty microbial blends designed to sequester carbon from CO2 and Methane green
house gas emissions, thereby producing harmless oxygen and hydrogen byproducts. We will be using some of the leading soil biologists in the US analyzing and prescribing the best inoculants for testing.
Los Angeles County will be using specialty NASA satellites for monitoring and confirming the GHG
emissions before, during, and after the inoculant treatments. Once the hard data verifications
determine the efficacy of the best treatment solutions, then these systems can be used for
diverse bioremediation projects for reversing greenhouse gas emissions worldwide.
ADVANCING MULTIPLE ENVIRONMENTAL RESTORATION PROJECTS
The landfill bioremediation project marks just the beginning of numerous environmental
restoration projects that the regenerative microbes can successfully decontaminate. In addition,
the Living Earth Foundation will begin offering its bioremediation services where there have been
early signs of success in fields where there are high demands for ecological restoration which
include: oil spills and red tide decontamination; wastewater treatment operations; flood
water decontamination; EPA SuperFund cleanup projects; livestock/poultry/fishery
health services; and a special emphasis on regenerative agricultural training.
In addition to comprehensive bioremediation research projects, the Living Earth Foundation will use its professional and financial resources to assist in making regenerative organic agriculture the healthiest and most productive means for growing our foods, cleansing the ecosystems, and restoring climatic balance. Our four-point action plan is designed to help farmers to quickly and profitably transition to regenerative organic agricultural practices through the creation of:
OUR PRIMARY OBJECTIVE is to assist conventional farmers and ranchers in replacing highly impactful agrochemical dependencies with highly beneficial microbial systems that improve both the organic health of the ecosystems and the profitability of their agricultural operations. We seek to make these regenerative organic transitions AS QUICKLY AND PROFITABLE AS POSSIBLE!
For too long, agrochemical farming has controlled the primary means of food production despite the ill-health effects that it has on the families, the communities, and the environment. More and more farmers are being squeezed out because they can't afford the high operational & mechanization expenses with such low profit margins. These smaller farms are systematically being marginalized and replaced by the agro-industrial conglomerates.
Our nonprofit organization is fully committed to restoring the viability of the family-owned farms and ranches by providing them with the educational tools and resources for dramatically improving the resilience and productivity of their soils. STEP ONE is creating a network of strategically placed learning centers for introducing these new regenerative systems that are having enormous success for growing our foods, cleansing our ecosystems, and restoring the climatic balances.
The widespread use of toxic agrochemicals has been steadily destroying the microbial cultures that keep airborne carbons in check. It is estimated that if JUST 20% of farmlands switched to regenerative ag practices, it would be enough for the cleansing microbes to sequester airborne carbons back into the soil to reach sustainable levels! Rather than costing $TRILLIONS in carbon taxes, these new regenerative systems will CREATE NEW JOBS AND BOOST OUR ECONOMIES by improving the quality and affordability of our foods, while simultaneously helping to restore climatic balance. Addressing the root cause of global warming thus resides in our ability to live and do business in alliance with nature.
In order to create a cleaner & healthier environment, it’s important that our sciences shift gears and learn how to enliven, rather than suppress, nature’s organic designs. We now know innovative ways of activating regenerative microbial cultures to cleanse and restore our ecosystems. Once agrarians discover that the new regenerative agricultural systems are clearly more productive and profitable, we anticipate that organically grown foods will steadily become less expensive than chemically grown foods - thus making the highly impactful suppressive systems antiquated and obsolete!
HOW IT WORKS
A handful of healthy, living soil will contain billions of microbes. It should be noted that soils with an abundance of mineral nutrients - such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium - would be completely sterile without the presence of microbes. It’s important that soils have BOTH, healthy amounts of nutrients and microbial life, for the plants to have optimum growth and productivity!
Most nutrients simply cannot be absorbed directly by the plant root systems. Microbes are able to digest and excrete many of these nutrients that the roots can absorb. They are so essential that the plants excrete nutrients through their root systems called “exudate” that attracts the microbes directly to the roots’ surface.
This creates a truly win/win, symbiotic relationship for both the plants and the microbes. Feeding the soil thus means restoring the beneficial microbes back into the topsoils and nourishing them with premium organic fertilizers so that the plants can thrive & flourish – and thereby produce the healthiest, most nutritious foods possible!
In Drought-Stricken Times, by Restoring the Beneficial Microbes Back into the Soil It Improves the Absorbency and Water Holding Capacity Resulting in Sizable Water Savings as High as 50%
Organic Certification Requires a Three Year Chemical-Free Transition. With New Regenerative Systems, Most Growers Experience Sizable Yield Increases & Water Savings in the First Year!
Advanced MIcrobial Systems Assist in Restoring the Natural Soil Biomes to Provide Superior Insect, Weed, and Disease Resistance WITHOUT the Addition of Toxic Agrochemicals
Learn Valuable Techniques when Recycling Green Wastes Producing Fungal Dominant Composts that will Rapidly Cleanse the Soil & Optimize
Airborne Carbon Sequestration
When the Soils are Revived and are Once Again Healthy, the Plants Thrive & Create Self-Regulating Systems that Resist Pests & Act to Strengthen
the Beneficial Pollinators
It's Important to Keep the Topsoils Thriving w/o Disrupting the Microbial Cultures from Tilling. Diversifying with Cover Crops Helps to Keep the Soil Healthy and Increase Revenues
Discover How to Steadily Boost the Diversity of the Soil Microbial Biomass and Thereby Increase the Fungal-to-Bacterial Ratios for Consistently Improving the Overall Fertility
The Widespread Use of Toxic Agrochemicals has been Steadily Destroying the Microbial Cultures that Keep Airborne Carbons in Check. Our Regenerative Systems Restore Them!
"Our farm was in serious trouble, but after implementing the soil food web approach we increased our yield by 150% in a single season. In addition, we were very successful to repeat this approach on different soils at different farms achieving excellent results. We also cut many input costs such as ferti-lizers by at least 60%. We continue to monitor and move our soils to a much better place, production continues to increase while many other benefits become apparent such as reduced disease, improved crop resistance to cold and/or heat, improved drainage, reduced soil salts along with better water holding capacity. It also improved the taste and has better shelf life."
"The soil food web approach is an effective and viable means of rapidly regenerating agricultural soils, enabling farmers to operate without the use of chemical inputs, thus protecting the world’s waterways, insect, and animal populations. Restoring the soil food web to agricultural soils restores productivity and profitability to agriculture and results in substantial levels of carbon sequestration, and has the potential, if implemented on a global scale, to return atmospheric carbon to the safe level as identified by the Intergov-ernmental Panel on Climate Change."
October 8th, 2021: "By protecting our ecosystems, we strengthen the power of our soils, our grasses, and our trees to trap carbon pollution and help our natural systems to build up our resilience against the climate impact that we know that we are already facing. Taping into these natural climate solutions will protect public health, they will protect us against climate impact, they will promote biodiversity and yes, they will GROW OUR ECONOMY!"
