"It is lamentable that as soil scientists coming from the university classroom we are not acquainted with the natural solubility of the minerals found in rocks. What would Julius Hensel say!" "What we need to discuss is, what gives life to plants? What animates the minerals so that they can be transformed into biodiversity? For this we have to make a great effort as scientists to understand that agriculture and plants aren't the arbitrary sum of minerals: plants are harmony, a symphony, a miracle of nature.

Restore the Crown of Abundance THURSDAY AUGUST 7, LOUIS MAY, an elder environmentalist in the upper Hudson Valley, drove me 70 miles to see a tree he has watched and measured for 35 years. Lou’s tree is in dense forest on a steep slope at the south end of Schoharie Valley. Its 18-inch dbh trunk isn’t impressive for that forest.
