Meet the Father of Soil Conservation

More than 100 years ago, a young scientist, Hugh Hammond Bennett, recognized that the United States was at risk of losing it’s most important resource – it’s soil. He made it his mission to change the trajectory of agriculture at a time of great crisis and to provide farmers and ranchers with the information and tools they needed to be sustainable. This 21 minute video is the story of the conservation movement that Hugh Hammond Bennett began and includes interesting insights into the policies and structures that he set up that we continue to rely on today. I hope you’ll enjoy this Holiday reflection.
