Once again we enjoy the book «Eating dirt» by Charlotte Gill. Traducción al castellano el próximo viernes.

I am now sharing again a text extracted from the wonderful book «Eating dirt» by Charlotte Gill.

It takes at least four hundred years to regrow an old forest naturally, but the kind of time required to make soil is millenial and geologic. You can´t build a forest floor in a nursery or manufacture topsoil in a mill. The dirt is the dirt, and that´s all there will ever be for as long as it takes for the woods to grow it back. The forest of the world may sequester carbon- 1.146 billion ton of it- but two-thirds of this is stored not in the trees but underground, in soil and peat.

I hope you have enjoyed this text as much as I did. Until Monday. Graciela.
