TTHANKS aims to convert South Korea’s arable land into farmland optimized for carbon sequestration and to address climate change.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has suggested that agriculture can capture more carbon, helping to overcome the climate crisis. TTHANKS’ team has practiced natural farming methods for four years, and visited natural farmers nationwide.
Their ‘CarbonCatching Weekend Farm’ campaign teaches the relationship between climate change and soil, making healthy compost, and designing garden-type farms to mix crops in symbiotic relations, with no-tillage and no weeding farming. Companies and organisations sponsor employees to participate alongside citizens, to experience farming and see the rewards for healthy crops. TTHANKS have also supported education and farming experiences for young people, who farm on weekends, as well as selling agricultural products from natural farmers. In 2021, their number of farms will grow to around 10 nationwide.
