The health of the soil = the health of the people. Why? The soil provides nutrition to the plant, which in turn provides nutrition to the foods that we eat.
Have you ever tried to plant a seed and it did not grow? This result is often because the soil is no longer able to support life. Despite many believing soil is just dirt on the bottom of your boots, it has a lot of life including minerals, air, water and organic matter. One of the basic principles of organic agriculture is that we take the time to manage soil without the application of industrially fabricated nutrients. In this talk, Sarah offers the differences between sustainable, organic vs conventional agricultural systems along with how to naturally rebuild soil health with tradition, innovation and science ensuring good quality of life for all.
