Regenerative Responses: Building the Soil Carbon Sponge

Linda Gibbs is the Owner & Principal Manager of the gardens at Woodshed Recording Studio, growing food, medicine, and soil. She teaches at the Gaia school of healing and Earth education and is a soil advocate for Kiss the Ground. One week after her home burned down in the Woolsey Fire, she spoke on behalf of Kiss the Ground at the 73rd annual Conservation Resource Districts conference on soil and fire resilience. The urgency of our times and the loss of her home spurred her to begin offering free classes to educate and motivate people about what they can do right under their feet to regenerate the Earth and address climate change.
