Help in creating a group of university partners to conduct further research in correlation to the properties that exist in all the different soils that we are running into. So this network would be worldwide and the would take a region and have their students study the soils around them and really come up with recipes of what that soil can make. Showing its good properties and bad. It is all about giving people better houses.
