Analysis, Planning, Training, Implementation, and Evaluation
The soil is the great connector of our lives, the source, and destination of all. ---Wendell Berry
Our land is more valuable than your money. It will last forever. It will not even perish by the flames of fire. As long as the sun shines and the waters flow, this land will be here to give life to men and animals. ---Chief of the Blackfoot
