Soil quality decline in the United States could lead to an increase in CO2 levels in the atmosphere, as KSJD's Jeff Pope and Bob Bragg reported in the March 21st edition of Ag Markets and More. But some local farmers are using non-traditional techniques to improve soil health on their land. KSJD's Austin Cope talked with Grant and Kathy Curry of the Permaculture Provision project to learn more.

Austin Cope is a former Morning Edition host for KSJD and now produces work on a freelance basis for the station. He grew up in Cortez and hosted a show on KSJD when he was 10 years old. After graduating from Montezuma-Cortez High School in 2010, he lived in Belgium, Ohio, Spain, northern Wyoming, and Himachal Pradesh, India before returning to the Cortez area. He has a degree in Politics from Oberlin College in Ohio.
