"Conservation Matters" from the Wilson County Citizen (Fredonia, Kansas)
The stories we tell ourselves have consequences.
Workshops: Didi Pershouse and I, with Sam Weiser, Bud Darwin, and Dana Everhart from Sequoia Riverlands Trust coached the students (along with some adults) with some basic hands-on demos of soil health and watershed function, such as a flour vs bread demo, slake test, water infiltration, and a tabletop rainfall simulator. For a closing, we asked what new questions the participants had -- and we did not attempt to answer them. The following is a transcription of what I heard, rearranged a bit.
For the last year I've been meeting not only with farmers and ranchers, but also with economists, investors, non profits, and policy makers to strategize about how we can regenerate the soil carbon sponge on a large scale in a global economy that often seems designed to do just the opposite.
