No such thing as a free lunch.
Invest in healthy soils
Fertile land is limited. 99.7% of our food nutrition still comes from the land and the fresh water we need to produce the food are filtered by the land. We not only have to share it for our survival today, but we also have to share it with the future generations. Thus, the quality of the land and of our lives are linked. So how we manage the land now matters more than ever before, and we need to start investing in it because we are degrading it faster than it is recovering.
Rehabilitating degraded land offers high returns, but we are not doing enough. Let us pay our bill because there is no such thing as a free Lunch. Let us invest in healthy soils.
