Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life

For centuries, agricultural practices have eroded the soil that farming depends on, stripping it of the organic matter vital to its productivity. Now conventional agriculture is threatening disaster for the world’s growing population. In Growing a Revolution, geologist David R. Montgomery travels the world, meeting farmers at the forefront of an agricultural movement to restore soil health. From Kansas to Ghana, he sees why adopting the three tenets of conservation agriculture―ditching the plow, planting cover crops, and growing a diversity of crops―is the solution. When farmers restore fertility to the land, this helps feed the world, cool the planet, reduce pollution, and return profitability to family farms.

Holistic Management
Holistic management is an approach to managing and making decisions that takes into account the interconnectedness and interdependence of various factors within a system. It was developed by Allan Savory, a Zimbabwean ecologist, as a way to address the complex challenges faced in managing ecosystems, particularly in the context of agriculture and land management. At its core, holistic management recognizes that ecosystems are dynamic and complex, and that they consist of multiple interrelated components such as soil, plants, animals, water, and people.
