Aggregates to Agriculture
In an exciting new development, the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) is taking great interest in the use of production fines for soil remineralization. Mark S. Kuhar, in an editorial of the April issue of Pit and Quarry magazine, a trade magazine for the aggregate industry, announces the current forming of a National Task Force for Soil Remineralization that will strategize on how to get stone producers together with farmers and nursery operators, “in other words, how to move aggregates to agriculture.” Read editorial

Join Us to Address Food Security in Kilimanjaro
The Kilimanjaro Project supplies local small-scale farmers with "Rutubisha" (an all-natural fertilizer with rock dust, biochar, and compost manure), and trains them to grow healthy crops and nutrient-dense foods, leading to increased income, better lives, more resilient communities, healthier people, and food security now and in the future.
Every bit helps, even $10 can help reach our goals, and a contribution of $100 is enough to sponsor a small-scale farmer and their family for 2-3 years.
Donate today to create economic opportunities and food security for small farmers in Tanzania!
