two short emails,and i have been invited into the world of dark earths.
Terra Preta is a mysterious dark soil that seems to regenerate itself. A specific layer is mined by native Amazonians, so as to allow the soil to continue to regenerate itself. All roots that make homes in this soil are abnormally blessed, and give rise to plant communities of enormous fertility. Although it seems to have existing for many hundreds of years, the study of it seems to have intensified recently, within a certain tiny circle. I have just begun to explore.
