“The Land Ethic and the Importance of Soil”

the Rev. Dr. Mark Y.A. Davies, speaking

Soil degradation is not on too many people’s radar screen, much less high on their list of most pressing ecological problems facing our world today, but that being said, soil degradation is still one of the most significant ecological challenges of the 21st Century whether we recognize it or not. The good news is that there are practical, fun, and healthy ways we can all work together to regenerate our soil for the sake of all life.
