ENVISION THIS: “Enhancing the natural flow of carbons to soil will result in increased microbial diversity, improved nutrient cycles, expanded water holding capacity, greater resilience, improved ecosystem health, and a more satisfying, profitable future for farmers and ranchers”…and, as a co-benefit, sequesters carbon from the atmosphere!

 

In Grass, Soil, Hope, A Journey through Carbon Country our guest, Courtney White explores the multiple ways CO2, when sequestered in soil, can become our ally instead of our enemy.   Here’s just some of the food for thought offers us:

“Carbon is not ‘the bad guy’—carbon is part of our essence.  Its story needs to be told and heard. It is our past, present, and future. It is our story.  It is the story of grass.  The story of green. The color of hope.”

“Every living thing above ground—whether it’s hairy vetch, a mighty ponderosa pine, an elusive coyote, an endangered bird, a busy beaver, or an equally busy human being—depends on the vast universe of life in the soil…and at the heart of this micro world is carbon, the glue that holds the web together.”

“The Greenhorns are the new alchemists.  Carbon and glomalin are the new alchemy. Food is the new gold.”

“Art, harmony, beauty, aesthetics—as perceived by us—are all signs of health in nature and ourselves…The principles that made a practice restorative and regenerative were the same ones that made it beautiful.”

“We don’t need to wait for something new under the sun to come along to restore the land and ourselves to health.  It’s here.”

Join Courtney and us in exploring these hopeful observations for which Michael Pollan wrote a foreword.
