"Nature never leaves herself bare only humans leave her bare"
--Breanne Gibson talking about soil quality
"I think for us and it's evolved but we’ve always supported each other in our individual journeys there’s never been a feeling that I can’t live my life because I’m with you and vice versa and that’s been really freeing .”
--Breanne Gibson on fourteen years with her husband
Questions for the farmers market:
How do you keep your soil healthy?
A farm that is focused on building soil health first is what you are wanting.
Do you use synthetic fertilizer, fungicide, or herbicides? No
These chemicals are toxic to the living soil microorganisms and make their way into both the water you drink and the food you eat.
Who works on your farm?
A farm that sees their team as a extremely valuable part and not random labor.
If it is an meat product ask:
Do you have a grazing plan? Yes...
Are you working with your animals to maximize plant growth and biodiversity? Yes...
Overall, you want to support farmers, businesses and brands that are regenerating soil, restoring native grasslands, truly caring for their animals through holistic management, and sequestering carbon through healthy soil practices.
