Conversations With John Kempf – Jill Clapperton

A discussion about the need for more active fuel management to reduce fire severity, how natural ecosystems regularly experience local ‘cataclysmic’ events such as fire and floods, and various species are dependent on these events for successful propagation, which indicates they are a necessary part of healthy ecosystems and have been for millennia.

They also discuss how water and nutrient movement in plants is determined by soil temperature, not air temperature.

This information is invaluable for anyone growing plants in a climate where cooling is needed.
