An interesting video by the NRCS about soil movement through different soil types and structures. Yes - I know they show a picture of "Big Ag" but I've found that lately the Soils folks are waking up to more "permaculture" type methods. In fact geoff lawton stated that the USDA contacted him about teaching a PDC for them!

I don't know - I strongly suspect he might - I mean it's a HUGE validation for permaculture! Wouldn't that be awesome?

It would also be a huge validation for the USDA.
It would show us that they are not just locked into the artificial agriculture we associate them with.

The mere thought that the USDA was willing to learn from a source other than ChemAg...priceless.

I thought this video
was kind of interesting showing the differences of tilling and no tilling dirt.
