If Earth suffers, what’s for dinner? The Earth may have no better friend than Fred Kirschenmann, distinguished fellow with the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, President of the Board at Stone Barn Center and North Dakota farmer. How well we care for soil has a direct effect on what our food does for us. Earthlings are getting ‘wake up’ calls at an opportune time when a new generation is no longer focusing just on “me and my” culture. How we farm and what we eat matters. Instead of just “growth” we can aim to regenerate life on earth–thriving and flourishing in our own ways and right in our own neighborhoods.
