I get the distinct impression from some folks that this talk of soil health and sustainability is old hippie talk. Well, it may be to some extent, and nothing against old hippies, but it goes far beyond.
The following link is a letter co-signed by various conservation, environmental, and agricultural groups to NRCS chief Dave White. It shows their support of White and NRCS in the “initiative” to make soil health a major driver in it’s program and planning activities.
Thanks to NACD on Facebook for bringing this to my attention!
