Aít - Gather/Land Connection

This place is not just our domicile, but a piece of ground that is well suited to producing food. It would feel wrong to occupy that kind of land and let it lie fallow. The ethical choice is to manage it for food production in a way that maintains productivity, improves the health of its soils and watershed, and sequesters more carbon than it burns.
