Connecting Over Soil
It's no secret that there's a divide between the global North and South. Most people know about the huge wealth gap between the industrialized and so-called "developing" worlds, and that rates of pollution, resource use, greenhouse gas emissions - and much more - vary widely between them. But there's another gap, one that's rarely discussed in the media, or even by NGOs. It involves changing attitudes to farming, to the land and the soil - something worth considering in this UN-designated "International Year of Soils.'
