Groundbreaking research project with rock dust and biochar at New Harmony Farm in West Newbury, MA. [VIDEO]
Interview with Eder de Souza Martins, and a sneak-peak into the heart of Brazilian remineralization research.
We're heading over to Brasília to interview Suzi Huff Theodoro, a geologist with a PhD in sustainable development, her particular focus: remineralizing soils! Suzi is a research professor at the University of Brasilia and she also has been an advisor to the Brazilian Parliament for the environment and agriculture. She's been engaged in projects and research on remineralization for over 15 years. Read the full transcript here.
RTE has filmed a discussion on the potential role of remineralization to sequester carbon and stabilize the climate. Three prominent speakers participated in the discussion during SER2011, the 4th World Conference on Ecological Restoration in Merida, Mexico: Dr. Goreau, President of the Global Coral Reef Alliance and Coordinator of the UN Commission (SIDSPINST), Ron Larson, an expert on biochar, and Albert Bates, author and director of the Institute for Appropriate Technology.
RTE has released a documentary about a research project proving remineralization to be an effective and sustainable strategy for producing higher yields and nutrient dense crops in remote Brazilian communities. Click "Read more" to watch the video in Portuguese with English subtitles.
