Worldwatch in The Oregonian

Check out the Letter to the Editor that Nourishing the Planet wrote in response to a recent article in the Oregonian about the restoration of degraded marshland. In our letter, we highlight organizations like the Institute for Sustainable Development (ISD) in Ethiopia and the Rhino Conservation Trust in Zimbabwe that are working with small scale farmers to show that combining conservation and agriculture is in farmers’ best interest and prevents the need to repair degraded land in the first place.
