Over 33% of the worlds soils are tarnished, resulting in increased food prices and decreased nutritional value. In Montreal, Canada Sylvain Picker is committed to using agroforestry and permaculture as the next step in organic farming and has created seed-balls as the most effective way to accomplish that. Using super foods, SeedTheGlobe works to regenerate ecosystems and provide impoverished communities through the creation of these organic rich pellets.
