changing the world in our own backyard
News from the Humus Project is sent out once a month
"It’s the little things citizens do that will make a difference."
- Wangari Maathai
We make our soils come alive, grow edible landscapes and offer useful information to fellow gardeners in four languages: English, German, Dutch and Portuguese.
That’s the surface activity of the Humus Project.
In the root layers, we
~ research and explore anything to do with humus, soil life and composting from scientific and popular sources.
~ practice the art and craft of composting and experiment with different methods and recipes.
~ read, document, write, learn and talk a lot about humus.
~ draw inspiration from pioneers of the ‘humus revolution’ from the past and present across the world.
~ summarise and extract the most important information and translate it into clear ‘grassroots' language.
~ get together regularly, share work on our quintas, swap seeds, plants and microorganisms.
~ harvest and eat together, celebrate the fruits of our labour and enjoy our community of earthkeepers.
~ make connections with other grassroots initiatives of earthkeepers.
