Shielding Soil with Plants and Animals
Part 2 of The Soil Series: Grassroots for the Climate Emergency

Bethany Church, Randolph

Principles of soil health tell us that the worst thing we can do is have bare ground exposed to the elements, a phenomena rarely found in nature. Multifunctional landscapes that integrate trees, shrubs, plants and animals can rebuild soils, enhance biodiversity, and improve livelihood strategies for our agricultural communities. We will discuss the value of integrating trees, perennial edibles, and animals into our farms and gardens (and surrounding landscapes) and the ways this in turn enhances soil biological health and healthy agroecosystems as a whole.
