Building Community By Building Soil
If you were to shake the hand of Scott Koepke, it would feel coarse and rugged after a long day of cultivating the soil. Chances are when you pull away your own hand, it will be covered in garden matter as well. People tend to not think much of that old banana peel in the trash or the slimy worms that resurface after a little rain, but not for Scott Koepke. These are his world, you could even say his soilmates.
