公民社會沙龍系列公開講座——土壤健康與可持續發展

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization is actively promoting attention to soil health. France also stressed the importance of farming transformation and agricultural land conservation in response to the global warming crisis at the 2015 Paris Climate Summit.

What is the serious crisis facing the soil? Half of the world’s soil is already degraded, which not only reduces the productivity of agricultural land and endangers food production, but also affects the soil’s ability to regulate climate, circulate fresh water and maintain biodiversity. Soil may be inconspicuous, but it is very important to us.

We invited a local organization “The Mushroom Initiative” to explain the crisis that soil is facing, the causes of land degradation, what makes a healthy soil, and how we can restore the soil to make the best use of the natural system to cope with the climate crisis.

Founded in 2008, the Mushroom Initiative is a non-profit organization that practices soil conservation in Tai Po farms, actively promotes land restoration, shares soil knowledge, promotes concern for soil health, responds to environmental issues with a positive attitude, and spreads the concept of coexistence with nature.

聯合國糧食及農業組織正積極推動國際社會關注土壤健康,法國也於2015年巴黎氣候峰會上強調農耕轉型和農地保育的重要,以應對全球升温的危機。 

那土壤正面臨怎樣的嚴峻危機?全球一半的土地已經退化,除了令農地生產力下降,危害糧食生產,也會影響土壤調節氣候、淡水循環、維持生物多樣性等功能。土壤或不起眼,但對我們卻十分重要。

我們邀請了本地團體「菇菌圓」,為大家講解土壤正面臨的危機,土地退化的成因,並解釋怎樣才是健康的土壤,我們又可以如何修復土壤,善用自然的系統應對氣候危機。 
 
菇菌圓於2008年成立,為非牟利機構,於大埔農場實踐潤澤土壤的耕種方式,積極推動復育土地的工作,並致力分享土壤知識,宣揚關注土壤健康,以積極態度回應環境問題,傳播與自然共存的理念。
