Super Soil: This Could Be the Healthiest Farm in California

Spiraling orchards. Flocks of sheep. Returning to basics. A trip to Apricot Lane Farms in Moorpark, Calif. transports you to an idyllic environment. One that focuses on the natural ebbs and flows of a purposefully created ecosystem and has one very important thing at it’s center -- healthy soil. Here, letting plants go through their natural process of living and dying actually helps regenerate unhealthy soil. Val Zavala looks at cutting-edge environmental practices where soil is king. She also looks at how taking care of our soil can help to combat climate change. Focusing on the future by digging deeper into what’s under our feet.
