Soil By Matthew Evans
SOIL by Matthew Evans The incredible story of what keeps the earth, and us, healthy. Isn't it time we stopped treating the ground beneath our feet like dirt? Soil is a gift of life and is precious to all of us. Matthew Evans explains why we should not neglect the land beneath us and we need to understand how soil works - how it's made, how it's lost, and how it can be repaired. What we do in our own backyards, on our farms, and what we put on our dinner tables really matters. What we do to the soil, we do to ourselves. We need to take soil seriously because when there is no soil health, there is no plant health. Matthew Evans is the star of the long-running SBS TV series The Gourmet Farmer, as well as the recent documentary on seafood, What's the Catch?, in which he advocates for a change to Australian food labelling laws. A former chef and food critic, Matthew is now a Tasmanian smallholder, food writer and food activist.
