Upon returning from vacation, I was confronted with an offer to become the CEO of “Better Soils Better Lives,” which has developed techniques around soil restoration as a solution to global hunger and includes some interesting carbon dioxide extraction technologies so important in dealing with climate change. I’d worked with Roland at World Neighbors, and knew him from his classic book on agricultural extension, “Two Ears of Corn.” He’s worked on agricultural development for as long as I have worked in fundraising and covered 50 countries. He’s been nominated for the Global 500 Award, the End the Hunger Prize of the President of the United States and the World Food prize. https://bettersoilsbetterlives.org As you’ll see, I’ve got too much happening now to be an effective CEO, so I’ll help Roland as a consultant to meet some initial organizational development and fundraising needs.
