“Nature has endowed the earth with glorious wonders and vast resources that man may use for his own ends. Regardless of our tastes or our way of living, there are none that present more variations to tax our imagination than the soil, and certainly none so important to our ancestors, to ourselves, and to our children.” — Charles Kellogg, The Soils That Support Us, 1956
Join us as we go back to the roots to talk about soil and why this often overlooked substance is so essential to our bodies, the planet and future generations. In celebration of one year of podcasting we are launching a new series of interstitial episodes in which we will share some of our favorite tools and resources that we hope will be helpful to you in your journey. In today’s show we’re shining a spotlight on two eye-opening documentaries that we watched recently: Symphony of The Soil and The Need To Grow.
- Find out why soil is important even if you’re not a gardener.
- See how soil makes all life possible.
- Learn how soil is being depleted through industrial agriculture.
- Find out why soil is considered a non-renewable resource.
- Hear how healthy soil is crucial to your health.
- Get tips on the simple actions you can take to make a difference.
