gut microbes & the soil story

(h/t Ashton Watkins for finding this video)

the gut microbe-soil story:

we harbor 10:1 microbial DNA to human DNA in our bodies! what does this have to do with healthy soil? understanding that THE SOIL IS ALIVE with microbes, that we kill off when we spray chemical insecticides. we need these microbes: they bring nutrients to plant roots, store carbon in the soil, and purify and store water.

healing our soils through compost and soil amendments means:
1) healing our bodies with nutritious food
2) sequestering carbon from the atmosphere (fighting global warming)
3) purifying and storing water.

heal our soils. heal our bodies. heal our planet.
