Books for Spring Reading – The Urban Soil Summit we recently attended left us with tons of information and even more resources to follow up on later. If you’re up for learning more about what’s going on underground in your garden, or in our atmosphere, here are some great books to check out this spring while you’re planting your garden: The Soil will Save Us, by Kristin Olsen, which explains how we can reverse climate change and sequester carbon in our soils with holistic land management. Another hopeful book, Cows Save the Planet, by Judith D. Schwartz, reveals “alternative scenarios to the degradation and devastation we face.” It all depends on how we treat the soil. If you’re up for a little light reading, check out Dr. Elaine Ingham’s Soil Biology Primer to get the dirt on what’s really going on in your soil. After that, you’ll have a completely different perspective on your soil and its relationship to our gardens and our planet.
