As Director of Agriculture for The Nature Conservancy (TNC) in North America, Pipa Elias leads an interdisciplinary team of experts in a collaborative approach to help producers meet the growing demand for food while protecting critical lands and waters. The People of Soil Health Podcast host John Mesko and Pipa discuss the opportunity for agriculture to create solutions.  TNC believes farmers are among their greatest allies in conservation.  “Our vision is a future in which both people and nature thrive. To me there is not a better connection between people and nature than agriculture,” Elias said. “We all need to eat and we can do so in a way when we’re promoting soil health that really benefits people and nature.” Elias’s work can be found at nature.org/workinglands. TNC is on Twitter at @natureag and Elias is at @pipaElias.    Episode show notes
