Meat that heals the planet
As with meat, growing plants can be extractive or regenerative. Most of the soybeans that go to make plant-based meat alternatives grow in monocultures where soil erosion and nutrient runoff are common.

“A cow is really this, you can think of it as this compost vat … in a brittle environment, it’s this perfect depositor of compost and life back into the soil. If managed properly, their hooves can break the capping of the soil, their dung and urine add nutrients and, literally, biology back into the soil, and then it becomes that fertile ground for new life to come,” said Abbey Smith, a cattle rancher in the Northern Sierra.

He posts about what it’s like to live with the heat, dust and risk of fires spreading. At this writing, his city is on alert for out-of-control blazes and possible evacuation orders.
