Making Small Farms Work by Richard Perkins

Unlike conventional western agriculture, which I would describe as industrial farming, regenerative agriculture is about producing food in a way that actually improves the environment and particularly increases the amount of topsoil. Industrial farming damages and erodes top soil. Many scientists are worried that top soil depletion has reached such levels that we could see an environmental disaster in the near future to compete with global warming. There is precedent for this — the dust bowls of the American mid-west in the s. Incidentally, increasing the top soil also helps in the fight against climate change. Top soil actually sequesters and holds carbon thereby reducing CO2 in the atmosphere. Making Small Farms Work attempts to cover a lot of ground and for the main part seems to succeed.
