“Grass, Soil, and Hope – A Journey Through Carbon Country” by Courtney White

Grass Soil Hope Cover

This book caught my eye at the “Quick Pick” section in our local library. It piqued my interest as I am really interested in climate change and what can be done about it and of course Carbon is at the center of that debate.

The book is about a lot of things including carbon sequestration in soil via sustainable agriculture that builds up the soil and reduces the amount of fuel and fertilizer used while maintaining the the productivity of the land to provide food. I like win/win solutions to problems and reframing conflicts into cooperation and the practices and principles put forth in this book makes me very hopeful. I am very much interested in hope now.

You can get Grass, Soil, and Hope at the library!

    Soil is so important. Not having much up at the cabin makes me create some of my own through composting. I love the map on the cover. It is a bit like the ones I’m making for my RV journal. It’s been fun thinking of pictures to add to go with the locations we visit. – Margy

    I love that book cover – it is a story unto itself. I’m very interested in our carbon footprint and in sustainable farming. Unfortunately, where we live, the growing season is very short and most foods must travel to us.

    Alan – thanks for the tip. I will look for this the next time I am at the library. It reminds me of a book I read a couple of years ago about work being done in farming, ranching and fishing to re-vitalize the earth. Good, hopeful stuff!

    Hope for the state of the world is something Iā€™m sorely lacking in right now…. any book that suggests solutions to any part of the problem seems like an excellent choice of reading material.
