What I Have Learned About Urban Soils: Part 1

  1. Working Ecosystems, which reduce the need for the importation of food (thus emissions), helps “fill” nutritional food deserts, and based on prior experience, e.g., Victory Gardens during WWII , there’s a high potential for this to happen.
  2. Eco-Engineered Ecosystems provide natural solutions to stormwater runoff, air pollution, and the recycling of waste.
  3. Amenity Ecosystems, which are extremely important for human quality of life and health and outdoor educational opportunities.
