      About SoilHack

SoilHack was set up to provide a space for people to collaborate in 
sharing information to help better understand our soils and how to 
improve their health, having been inspired by the DIY spirit of the 
FarmHack movement. More details here: 

In recent years there has been a growing understanding of the complexity 
of interactions that have an effect on the soil and a growing awareness 
of the importance of our soil resource for future generations and to 
mitigate climate change . We are aware that some current methods that 
are used to manage the land are detrimental to soil health, but how can 
we move away from them and move towards regenerative practices?

There are increasing examples of people positively transforming their 
soils using novel techniques such as no-till/no-dig, cover cropping, 
biochar, and agroforestry.

The challenge, especially for people who are full-time producers, is to 
somehow get to grips with a toehold on the latest soil research which 
helps to understand why these practices work, as well as getting a sense 
of how and when they may be appropriate . SoilHack is a response to 
this, a self-organising network for sharing knowledge.

Contribute your experience, insight, and curiosity to this effort.

      About the Gathering

the programme for self-organised workshops and sessions that arise as 
needed and relevant over the weekend. As well as practical workshops, 
there will be time set aside for discussions and strategy sessions on 
how to build the SoilHack movement.

 From South America, where payment must be made with subtlety, the Bormann organization has made a substantial contribution. It has drawn many of the brightest Jewish businessmen into a participatory role in the development of many of its corporations, and many of these Jews share their prosperity most generously with Israel. If their proposals are sound, they are even provided with a specially dispensed venture capital fund. I spoke with one Jewish businessmen in Hartford, Connecticut. He had arrived there quite unknown several years before our conversation, but with Bormann money as his leverage. Today he is more than a millionaire, a quiet leader in the community with a certain share of his profits earmarked as always for his venture capital benefactors. This has taken place in many other instances across America and demonstrates how Bormann’s people operate in the contemporary commercial world, in contrast to the fanciful nonsense with which Nazis are described in so much “literature.”

So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish participation in Bormann companies that when Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities in no uncertain terms that this must never happen again because a repetition would permanently rupture relations with the Germans of Latin America, as well as with the Bormann organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish money to Israel. It never happened again, and the pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an Argentinian safe haven, protected by the most efficient German infrastructure in history as well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.
