The Soil Fixers:


You won’t read about aliens but you may be surprised to learn about land stewards dedicated to protect the future of our food, our waterways, our climate, and our civilization, all dependant on soil.
How we conserve, or repair damage to this essential resource is one of the most important commitments of our generation! This author leads us on a 30-year journey of discovery, working with those closest to the land as they tackle significant challenges of soil protection and restoration.


“An inspiring, personal story about an organization dedicated to solving one of humanity’s most important and all-too-often overlooked crises.”

– Dr. David R. Montgomery, author of ‘Growing A Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life’.


About the Author

Having grown up on a Mennonite family farm in Waterloo County, Ontario, Canada, as one of ten siblings, Harold Rudy is totally engrossed in all things agriculture. With a B. Sc. (Agriculture) and a M. Sc. (Rural Planning and Development), both from the University of Guelph, he has been privileged to dedicate his thirty-year career toward advancing the environmental stewardship programs of the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association. As a 2017 inductee into the Canadian Conservation Hall of Fame and recipient of the Canadian Seed Growers’ Association Life-time Achievement Award in 2016, Harold is solidly grounded in soil and crop matters and recognized as an authority on the many challenges confronting food production, environmental stewardship, and the ever-increasing pressures of our farm communities. He lives with his partner Sandra on the family homestead established by his parents in 1929. Nearly ninety years later, it continues to specialize in horticultural production.
