Soil demo! The biggest message that is circulating this conference is how we can support (not degrade) and nurture soil so that it sequesters carbon from the atmosphere to combat global warming. This easy-to-see example showed how soil that was over grazed, compacted, and bare (uncovered by plants) basically melts into water...Aka erosion which leaves ground flooded when it's wet, dumping nutrients and minerals into streams, and barren when it's dry, uninhabitable for plants. If you care about your health, soil is the common denominator. If you care about the planet, soil is the solution. Good soil is about chemical balance, microbial life, fungal life, water, and minerals. if this issue isn't on your radar already, start asking questions! @fhcasa #knowyourfarmer #soilhealth #foodhealth #climatechange #fhcasa2017
