From Oil to Soil: a Podcast that Plants Trees

OUR IDEA: A Podcast that Plants Trees...for YOU...for FREE!

This podcast, "From Oil to Soil: the shift" is a weaving-together of solutions that will help us to achieve Global Cooling. We aim at reframing the mainstream practice of emphasizing the negative into solution-based thinking that is so wonderfully exemplified by the work of Project Drawdown.



You click subscribe on our website . We plant trees with Gone West. You receive a tree certificate. All this, at no cost to you.

1 subscription = 1 native tree planted.


The genius of this podcast is that it will not only offer ecological knowledge, but it will directly do something to help; for every person who subscribes, a native tree will be planted...FOR FREE! With the carbon sequestered and the biodiversity gained, each subscriber will have offered the earth a breath of fresh air and a chance for a soil-rich future.


Our goal is to raise $5,221 to celebrate the new year, planting trees! Aside from a small portion (~ $250) used to cover web hosting/equipment, all of the funds raised will go to provide native sapling who each person who subscribes. The funds raised here will cover the first ~2021 subscribers and therefore ~2021 trees (~$2.50/tree).


Each episode will focus on a different Project Drawdown solution. See our website for more details.
