The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger.
Our goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.
A diverse range of organic matter is the best way to improve soil fertility. Firstly, manure should be added for nitrogen, which is a critical component of fertile soil. Livestock manure (cow, goat, pig) is a good option. Try to get manure from healthy, free range animals, not from factory farmed animals. Another great source of nitrogen for your garden is compost. Compost has the added benefit of helping to break up clay particles, allowing water to drain better. Additionally, in sandy loam it binds the grains together to reduce moisture, making the soil more fertile.
Knepp is a 3,500 acre estate just south of Horsham, West Sussex. Since 2001, the land – once intensively farmed – has been devoted to a pioneering rewilding project. Using grazing animals as the drivers of habitat creation, and with the restoration of dynamic, natural water courses, the project has seen extraordinary increases in wildlife. Extremely rare species like turtle doves, nightingales, peregrine falcons and purple emperor butterflies are now breeding here; and populations of more common species are rocketing.
