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.
