What is soil health, and how do we measure it? What is regenerative agriculture, and why is the label organic confusing and not particularly useful?
In this episode of the podcast Lars talks to David Montgomery, a professor of geology at University of Washington, who has in the last fifteen years written a number of books and articles about soil health, food production and agriculture. As he tells it himself, his journey through the world of regenerative agriculture and soil health has turned him from being a pessimist into a staunch optimist, and we’re pretty sure that this comes through in the episode.
David also has a new book coming out this summer, written with his wife Anne Biklé: What your food ate: How to heal our land and reclaim our health, which we talk about in this episode. The book is already available for preorder. (https://wwnorton.co.uk/books/9781324004530-what-your-food-ate)
