Healthy Soil as Baseline Indicator for Farm Performance

I appreciate how simply and directly this google post by the Carolina Bee Company says it:

The most modern and successful farming practices of today are represented by significant advancement of and focus on technique and management — technique and management practices that cast aside our past dependence on chemistry and genetic adulteration.

In the next decade or three, we are going to see a dramatic shift[1] in how food is grown where the baseline indicator for how well a farm is performing is rooted foremost in the health of its soil.

#SayItLikeItIs: In her two years of graduate work (2016-2018), Kaytlyn learned the art of bearing witness to an unheard collection of stories about human dignity. She first explored how she could apply a spiritual care therapeutic model to how farmers relate to their land. Realizing a greater cultural narrative was implicated, she then studied the impact of collective memory on cultural narratives and the pervasive "don't care" attitudinal construct towards Earth and Her landscapes.
