“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” ~ Wendell Berry
I think this is a sentiment that we are increasingly at risk of forgetting as we plunder our earth for everything we can rip from its bowels. Oil, gas, fish, minerals, coal, the list is endless. We can’t just keep taking for short term gain we must slow down and consider how best to plan for the future by using the natural sustainable resources that we have. Not doing that is only an option if you are happy to continue to contribute to the death of our planet.
