Every year we drive a little west to see 500,000 sandhill cranes migrate north through the Platte River area. Incredible, soulful experience. https://www.instagram.com/p/BR373R2hvho/?taken-by=monarchgardensbenjaminvogt

Plants are not designer clothes. They are not trends. They are sacred lives. Breeding them should be done sparingly & with proven ecological purpose.

Farmers know about the weather (climate change), and how protecting the soil and water helps their operations. How can we present the science and work with those who are living with the land, witnessing the change in weather?
