To face the challenges of today, we must take a soil-first approach to our landscapes, restoring natural cycles, and bringing vitality back to ecosystems. All while putting the food back into food.

Praise for For The Love of Soil

"For years many of us involved in regenerative agriculture have been touting the soil health - plant health - animal health - human health connection but no one has tied them all together like Nicole does!

"She shows us through her own personal experiences adn those of farmers, ranchers, researchers and medical professionals all over the world that the answers lie in teh soil. A very thought-provoking read that is a call to action for all of us.

"I highly recommend For The Love of Soil for anyone interested in their health, their children's health and the health of our planet!"

– Gabe Brown, Brown's Ranch, author of Dirt to Soil

"A must-read for all farmers and land managers. Nicole uses a wonderful combination of personal experience, good case studies and evidence-based science to show how regenerative agriculture systems can improve farm productivity, reduce production costs, improve biodiversity, build resilience and how to substantially mitigate this existential crisis. It is truly a win, win, win soution to the multiple problems affecting today's agriculture."
