Our Soil, Our Strength


It may be easy to believe that growers are focused only on yield, but they’re also working to improve soil health and protect water quality. Nancy Kavazanjian, a member of the Global Farmer Network and Charles Hammer have been farming in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin for over 40 years. They have recently implemented a test project aimed at keeping local streams, wetlands, and lakes clean. This video is from RFDTV.
