Ditch those rototillers. There’s an agricultural revolution afoot, says guest Betsy Taylor, to restore healthy soil able to sequester more carbon, improve crop yields, and support biodiversity and pollinators. It’s a “no regrets strategy.” Urban dwellers can help too, by composting food scraps. Plus: a wide-ranging conversation with Betsy on the Green New Deal; the potential for faith, spirit, and nature to support us through these troubled times; and fostering strong community ties to build resilience.
Is there a way to tap our very deepest wisdom, our very deepest courage, at this planetary moment, to embrace what we’re being called to do? – Betsy Taylor
