    This video by Dr. Phil Gregory was shown at the November 12, 2017 meeting of ORG&HPS. It explains how the widespread use of sustainable agricultural practices, such as no-till/no-dig gardening, could have a significant beneficial impact on food security and climate change. Current agricultural practices destroy soil health and result in the release of soil carbon to the atmosphere. No till/no dig practices and rotational grazing practices improve soil health and result in the storage of carbon in the soil. This leads to improved crop yield, reduced desertification and reduced atmospheric carbon that is causing climate change. A “must watch” video for anyone concerned about the future of our planet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWILIYSf5ts
