There is nothing more that I like doing than caring for the earth. I love planting. I love working to see to it that soil is not wasted away by slides, erosion and mudflows. Whether I plant trees, crops or anything that has roots reaching out for the soil. I like feeling the soil in my hands knowing how much it does to make the world live. The soil is treated by most people as worthless. They walk on it, tramp it, dump their trash on it, dig and throw it away, build buildings and choke it. People bomb it, kill all that live in it. yet at the end of the day, the food they eat, the clothes they wear, the things they use and need, come from Mother Earth’s unrecognized, disrespected, uncared soil.
What a shame.
