I almost never watch television but this afternoon have made an exception. First one person and then another on Twitter lauded a film which has just been released, so Kiss The Ground seemed a perfect way to fill a free afternoon.
The film is about regenerative agriculture, focussing specifically on the US, but there was nothing which couldn’t be done elsewhere. For example, allowing cattle to graze in fields or collecting food waste to make into compost are already being done in various places.
Some of the examples in the film showed it taking just 15 years to regenerate very depleted soils, so perhaps there is hope for my back garden. In the meantime, at least my daughter’s apple tree produced the fruit it was supposed to this year. That is, big, tasty apples.
NB I’m having to post this post without previewing as WP is playing up. Hope you can see what I see – ie some writing, plus a photo of an apple in a fridge.
