Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Soil as Our Salvation
Common Dreams - 9/4/2015.
By Hannah Apricot Eckberg, Santa Barbara Independent - What if the answer to stopping climate change was lying right under our feet? What if one of the most revolutionary acts you could do was to plant a garden? Well, research is starting to show this might just be true.
