Dirt Rich

"Dirt Rich" shifts focus from greenhouse gas emissions to carbon drawdown which is the only viable solution for reversing the effects of runaway global warming in a timely manner. Through exploration of geo-therapy strategies, "Dirt Rich" shines a light on their value and beauty which undeniably are our last hope for protecting life as we know it on this challenged planet. Through regenerative agricultural practices, reforestation of abandoned land, protection/restoration of carbon-rich wetlands and keystone species, "Dirt Rich" illustrates how implementing these strategies will return our atmosphere to safe levels of carbon while growing soil, our most precious resource.
