The Battle To Save Our Dying Soil This is Camp Altiplano, where volunteers are using simple practices such as creating ponds and loosening hard earth to return the soil to health. ...

Herewith, AD lists the most beautiful biodynamic vineyards around the world: (Sunday April 22nd, 2018 — Architectural Digest )
