Some words of wisdom from American author + environmentalist, Wendell Berry to commemorate this Earth Day:

“The soil if the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”

– Wendell Berry,
The Unsettling of America: Culture and Agriculture

The words were passed on to us through the Hollywood Orchard, who celebrate Earth Day with a community pot luck, live musical performance of original work inspired by the orchard, and commemorative CD + hand-stitched booklet, pictured here. Last we heard, they had a few copies left—email them with inquires.
