I _______________  believe that my connection with living soil is sacred.

I promise to be a faithful steward of soil, and thus of Mother Earth - through my direct interactions with soil as well as the indirect influences of my personal choices and consumer demand.

I promise to be mindful of my impact upon soil every day.

I will compost all of my organic kitchen scraps and food waste.

I will grow plants inside and a garden outside.

I will touch soil with my hands every day.

I will gently and joyfully encourage others to join this Soil Stewardship Guild.

I will do all that I can to establish living soil installations at home, at work and elsewhere in my community.

I understand that soil-building is a powerful way to reverse climate change.

I understand that healthy, vibrant soil is key to nourishing food and clean water.

I know that our existence as humans is dependent on soil.

I vow to be an excellent soil steward and to help others to do the same.

(faith in living soil)
