Isabelle Jenniches, co-founder of the  New Mexico Healthy Soil Working Group, discusses the option of donating tax refunds to benefit farmers, ranchers, and organizations promoting soil health. She is a community organizer and soil educator. An accomplished artist, she also shares growing up in a small village in Germany and her grandmother's impact on her current work.
In the second half of the show, author and journalist Judith Schwartz  shares how she came to see soil as a crucible for many aspects of life, from sustaining a livable climate to holding water in the landscape to serving as the basis for thriving communities. She takes a clear-eyed look at global environmental, economic, and social challenges, and finds insights and solutions in natural systems.
