Mr. Happy Living here…
And I’m happy to be broadcasting from WYTV7 in the beautiful Queen City… Charlotte, North Carolina!
I love Certified Professional Soil Scientists and conservation agronomists and documentary movie stars and Natural Resources Conservation Service field agents and people from every walk of life that have discovered their reason for being on this planet…
And that’s why I love Ray Archuleta… he’s all of those things and he’s on a great, big, bold, important mission to save our planet by healing the soil.
:50 – Hey, Ray, welcome to the Something Significant Show!
1:00 – Tell our audience what you’re doing these days to leave your Mark of Significance on the World!
2:25- Okay, take us back in time… way back to the 1950’s… when the war was over and American farms were changing operations from small country farmers to huge industrial agriculture and ads were running in newspapers and TV saying, “D.D.T. is good for me”…
What problems did that create that you are trying to correct today…
4:10 – Tell us what your efforts to draw down carbon from the atmosphere and put it into the soil could mean for our farmers, and our food, and our planet, and for all of humanity…
5:55 – What are your personal practices—physical, mental, spiritual, financial, emotional— What things do you do to increase your CAPACITY so you can take good care of yourself, and your loved ones, and still have plenty leftover to give to others?

11:35 – And now, back to my inspiring guest, Ray Archuleta, a.k.a. the soil guy… He says, surprisingly many farmers really don’t know how the soil actually works… It kind of reminds me of how little modern day medical doctors know about how proper nutrition works
Ray, give us a quick overview of Soil Health Consultants and the Soil Health Academy… two organizations you launched after retiring from the NRCS in 2017…
13:30 – Can you give 30 seconds on the body and nature as systems?
