Remineralize the Earth promotes the regeneration of soils and forests worldwide with finely ground rock dust as a sustainable alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides, creating fertile soils much as the Earth does. Not only do we need to recycle and return the organic matter to the soil, it is equally vital to return all of the mineral nutrients which create fertile soils and healthy crops and forests.
An international NGO that networks information and research on soil remineralization to gardeners, farmers, ecological activists, scientists, policy makers and the aggregate and stone producers whose by-product is a source of remineralization; to promote further research and projects, from small to large, cooperative to businesses that would benefit and create a healthier environment. We have a website with an online magazine, forum, research, and many other resources.

I believe in Remineralize The Earth's mission very much. Living in Tahoe the clarity and well being of this beautiful alpine lake is on the rise back to what it once was but is still battling clarity issues and algae growth. One of the main culprits is synthetic fertilizers. The extra nitrogen and phosphorus along with road runoff and global warming have wreaked havoc on this lake. I believe in RTE's advocacy and education on using rock dust to restore our abused depleted soils to increase yields as well as reduce excess co2. One of the best things humans can do is "leave the earth a better place" than we found it. RTE is doing that and as long as they do I am right there volunteering with this org.
What a wonderful cause. Joanna and crew are always wonderful to work with and their dedication to this important work is inspiring. It is nice to volunteer with people so unselfishly dedicated to improving the earth.
I have been working with Remineralize the Earth (RTE) for one year, and this has been a great experience! Our team is made of committed and professional volunteers, who work towards promoting remineralization and sustainable agriculture. At RTE we adopt a collaborative approach, gathering people from many countries and various backgrounds in order to build exciting projects!
Personally, this opportunity has enabled me to network with researchers, investors and government officials in many areas related to sustainability. I have also developed skills to work with team members exclusively over the computer- given that we are all in different parts of the world, we need to have creative strategies to build cohesion, synergy and engagement.
The work is motivating and inspiring: we spread the knowledge about an effective, affordable and readily available technology that can produce more food, reduce carbon levels in the atmosphere, and save water!

I would definitely recommend volunteering with Remineralize the Earth. Ever since I joined, I have had the chance to gradually develop my skills in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere. I have not only learnt a lot about writing and translating, but about ecology and the huge importance that remineralization has in the future of our soils. Working for RTE offers you a fantastic opportunity to learn, practice your skills and be part of a worthwhile cause.
I would recommend working with Remineralize the Earth to anyone seeking flexible hours and a welcoming work environment. I've gained so many skills while working with this organization and have seen my own understanding of ecology and the Earth's processes grow tremendously. This is an opportunity that honors your abilities, teaches you, and makes you feel good!
