JOIN THE SOIL C QUEST CROWD ‘FARMING’ FUNDING CAMPAIGN TODAY

31 October 2017
We reached 40% Well Done! Help us reach our target by going to our online campaign.
 
26 October 2017
Support Soil C Quest to enable research for soil carbon sequestration, transferring carbon from the air into the worlds soils.

UPDATE: Why the 11.2 K Crowd funding limit??

Soil C Quest Crowdfunding supporters have been asking the question why the US$11.5K (Au$15K) limit on our fundraising target 🎯.

The answer… Soil C Quest has just become a Not-For-Profit Research Institute, which required us to go through a formal process to apply to fundraise. We had set a date to launch our crowdfunding campaign in connection with the NSW Landcare and Local Land Services Conference in Albury and wanted to fulfil this commitment.

Because we value our not-for-profit status and the trust of our supporters, we want to play by the rules…the new rules tell us we can only crowdfund up to Au$15 000 until we have our fundraising application formally approved. This process takes about three weeks… then we can crowdfund any financial target. 

So… watch this space…..a big surprise is coming soon.

Cheers and thanks for all your fantastic support.

The Soil C Quest Team.

IT’S A MATTER OF ADOPTABILITY
26 August 2016

It’s a matter of ADOPTABILITY… we plan to create and make available a natural technology that ANY farmer can easily and economically use to increase their soil carbon and crop productivity. Conventional, organic, horticulture, broad-acre, corporate, subsistence….any farm, any farmer, all farms, all farmers, over millions of hectares!! Imagine the C02 sequestration potential! …We can only achieve this scale if it is easy to adopt…so we make it easy.
