Soil

We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own. – Wangari Maathai

Today was dedicated to soil: integrity, organics and the power of compost. We talked about the affects of climate change on soil. We tested our own soil, and built a composter in a plastic bucket. We talked about the worth of the humble banana who gives back its life to the soil – versus the die-hard plastic water bottle.
