In the 1930s, the Dust Bowl ravaged crops and helped plunge the U.S. into an environmental and economic depression. After the howling winds passed and the dust settled, federal foresters planted 100 million trees across the Great Plains, forming a giant windbreak.
Holistic Management is a framework, most commonly applied to grassland management, that when properly practiced has the potential to regenerate damaged land. It focuses on mimicking the evolutionary grazing patterns of cattle to regenerate soils and restore grasslands.
From a satellite image, the Alto Valle is a curving line of dark green in an expanse of brown: it stretches from the Patagonian Andes, east to the South Atlantic.
