It’s all in the soil

Twenty-five percent of all the biodiversity of earth is in the soil, but we just can't see it. And we don't really know soil very well. Do we understand our dependence on soil? In this episode we discuss the care for soil and the lack of it.  Environmental influencer Saara Kankaanrinta has been running the ecological Qvidja Farm since 2014. How has regenerative farming changed the manors landscape?  Carbon capturing is a hot topic in Europe right now because of the EU Biodiversity Strategy. Member of the European Parliament Sirpa Pietikäinen is a long-time Chair of the Saari Residence’s advisory board who strongly believes that farmers are not a problem – they are part of the solution.
