TTHANKS is a company that solves food productivity and climate problems by regenerating all soil in the world into healthy land. Farmland, grassland, wetlands, and forests, which are carbon absorption sources, are undermining soil pollution, acidification, and biodiversity due to human artificial development. We would like to solve such a problem with Nature-based solution.
Healthy land plays an important role in climate change as its carbon storage capacity improves. In particular, agriculture is an important variable in climate change that emits and absorbs carbon. Soil management that isolates carbon is recommended by IPCC. Our farming methods that meet those standards include natural farming, natural cultivation, and natural agriculture. In the West, this includes renewable agriculture, permaculture, and carbon agriculture. They are all called in different terms, but they all have something in common that they focus on the ground.
TTHANKS, along with companies and crowd, is working on a project to restore damaged farmland to healthy land. We hope that the area where soil carbon is not discharged will continue to expand and function as a solution to solve climate problems. TTHANKS TRUST is a major project of TTHANKS to maintain, expand, and regenerate healthy land. As healthy land increases with the power of companies and citizens, the land is revived, people are revived, and the earth is revived. COOPERSTATION provides major services such as climate agricultural education, soil regeneration projects, and overseas agricultural cooperation to achieve SDG goals.
Climate Agriculture Education
Educate the correlation between the carbon reduction process of soil and climate change from schools to the general public. The goal is to enter school curriculum, companies, and public programs to raise awareness and improve the system. It operates and expands THANKS farms with companies so that urban residents can experience CSA (Climate Smart Agriculture).
| SDGs 13.3
Improve education, awareness-raising and human and institutional capacity on climate change mitigation, adaption, impact reduction and early warning
Soil Regeneration Project
We work to restore damaged soil and carbon absorption sources such as forests to a "soil regeneration program.“ It improves resilience to natural disasters such as drought, typhoons, and floods and produces healthy food. It is also a program that helps small producers and family farmers become independent by creating a sustainable food production system by improving soil quality. It is a program that regenerates the land and increases the carbon capture of soil by applying the methodology of community garden, forest creation, forest garden, regenerative agriculture, natural farming, and permaculture, respectively, according to spatial characteristics such as public land, reclaimed land, slash-and-burn field, forest fire region, deforestation area, and conventional farmland. The soil regeneration program includes Biochar that increase the carbon isolation of the soil. This is a "soil regeneration program" created by combining IPCC standards and existing farming methods. The process is as follows.
Environmental analysis and observation - soil, climate, energy, crops, FGI
Soil improvement manual and establishment of master plan for cultivated crops
Customized education, consulting, organization (local partner organization, R&R), and forming a cooperative
Farmland composition, sowing, planting, organic matter, Biochar, and other agricultural materials
Cultivation monitoring, pest control, weed management, water supply, weather change response, sales plan
Support online/offline sales consulting such as harvest, branding, distribution, and market, etc.
Result analysis (soil health, productivity, income, carbon reduction, and participant satisfaction survey)
By 2030, ensure sustainable food production systems and implement resilient agricultural practices that increase productivity and production, that help maintain ecosystems, that strengthen capacity for adaptation to climate change, extreme weather, drought, flooding and other disasters, and that progressively improve land and soil quality
By 2020, ensure the conservation, restoration and sustainable use of terrestrial and inland freshwater ecosystems and their services, in particular forests, wetlands, mountains and drylands, in line with obligations under international agreements
By 2020, promote the implementation of sustainable management of all types of forests, halt deforestation, restore degraded forests and substantially increase afforestation and reforestation globally
By 2030, combat desertification, restore degraded land and soil, including land affected by desertification, drought and floods, and strive to achieve a land degradation-neutral world
Overseas agricultural cooperation
We support and solve developing countries that need Korean agricultural technology and products. Developing countries by country, by region have food productivity, soil acidification, logging and slash-and-burn fields, desertification, pending income growth, agricultural environment, technology and product shortages, and many places want customized solutions accordingly. To solve the problems of these places, we form a project team consisting of domestic experts and local networks, establish strategies, and carry out projects.
Increase investment, including through enhanced international cooperation in rural infrastructure, agricultural research and extension services, technology development, and plant and livestock gene banks to enhance agricultural productive capacity in developing countries, in particular in the least developed countries
