  1. What a great post. The video on desertification was an eye opener, I had no idea, and the story of the Indian Village that won its water back is truly inspiring. Thanks for sharing these. One of my other hats is President of the board of Common Ground Farm. We are, among other things, training a new generation of farmers and involving ourselves in local food security. I will share these videos with the board.

  2. Wow! I am so glad that you can use these. That is some synchronicity right there. I was researching deserts this week and ran across them, before that I had no idea either. Really inspiring stuff. It is so comforting to see that there are solutions out there if we will do the work required to make change happen.

    Thank you!
