Aria McLauchlan & Harley Cross – The Opportunity Beneath our Feet

In Making Waves Conversations by Mark Sylvester

The Opportunity Beneath our Feet. Healthy soil for all Americans.

In this highly anticipated conversation, we will discuss why our future depends on our soils; and how Land Core’s Aria and Harley work across government, research, and the private sector to leverage our political and financial infrastructure to rebuild American agriculture into a force for regeneration.

During the live show, we talked about Land Core's Policy recommendation to the Biden-Harris administration.

Here's a link to their proposal.
