No Topsoils, No Food

No Topsoils, No Food

By Stephanie Seferian

Soil grows 95 percent of our food and sustains human life. But monocrops, pesticide reliance, and other modern farming methods have degraded soil health in lasting ways. Some scientists believe we have less than 60 harvests left.  The way we are feeding ourselves is undermining the very ecology we’re dependent upon. The hope? Regenerative farming. On today's show Kiss The Ground's Chief Executive Officer Evan Harrison urges each of us to participate in the regenerative movement.   Here's a preview: [6:00] A laundry list of all the consequences associated with degraded soil [10:00] The main reason why pesticides are a staple of the monocrop farming model, plus: what science says about degraded soil and a food's nutrient density [19:00] For people who buy and eat food (aka everyone), here's how you can support regenerative agriculture   Resource mentioned: Kiss The Ground film -- Join our (free!) community here.
