You just have to love Woody Tasch. From starting the Slow Money movement to his periodic wide-ranging, tangential, iconoclastic speeches and writing, Woody articulates both the incredulity and the hope of looking our system in the face and bearing down on the work to be done to improve it.
In this speech to the Food+Enterprise pitch-fest in Brooklyn on Feb 28, 2015, Woody lays out his latest, a "State of the Soil": "We are strong in terms of tillage, but weak in terms of fertility. We are strong measured in chemical and mechanical power but we are week in terms of soil erosion, weak in terms of connection to the land, weak in terms of sense of place."
Here's the 13 page pdf of the full speech. Please enjoy!
