Courtney White is the author of the new book Grass, Soil, Hope- A Journey through Carbon Country. A former activist and archaeologist, Courtney co-founded the Quivira Coaltion, a nonprofit dedicated to building bridges between ranchers, conservationists and environmentalists.
In this interview Courtney talks with Jill Cloutier about the soil beneath our feet and how soil, plants, and the carbon cycle may be the most viable solution to climate change that we have. By implementing land management strategies that create the conditions for longterm atmospheric CO2 sequestration in our soils, we can participate in the carbon cycle in a beneficial way. Climate-friendly agriculture and grazing has the potential to create a healthier planet for all, with more nutritious food, improved ecosystem services, habitat protection, increased food production, water conservation and a remineralization of our soils and bodies.
Learn about how you can become a carbon caretaker. Let’s all work together to create healthy soil!
After listening to this episode you will gain a new appreciation for wetlands, bogs, grasslands and beavers!
