Land stewardship means preserving local eco systems and water and nutrient sources while also leveraging the land’s resources for human benefit and for continued sustainability in the future. When land has been over consumed or over worked, then it becomes stale and stagnant, and loses its nutrients. When this occurs, grass roots and plant roots tend to become dislodged and easily washed or blown away. This is why crop rotation is so important. The land must be allowed to lie fallow periodically in order to regain some of those lost nutrients which crops take up. Even dirt needs to be fed and replenished on a regular basis. This goes to show that even inanimate, non-living things are actively a part of the life cycle.
When rebuilding over-consumed land, it becomes necessary to study why and how the land became so consumed in the first, and to realize what nutrients have been absent and for how long. This is a situation in which you have to steadily, over time, replenish plant growth, and replenish wildlife habitation, both of which are necessary in order to rebuild over consumed land. While this is taking place, things like spraying the ground with nutrients, rainfall, planting new native plants, and seeding the ground are all ways in which this rebuilding process can be hastened along. It is also necessary to move wildlife into the area, since their natural fertilization of the ground and stimulation of plant growth always rebuilds land and speeds up this process. It is necessary to keep an open mind when cultivating barren soil, since different ideas can sometimes be the one link that is missing from the process. Experimentation with sectioned off pieces of land is a good idea, along with thorough documentation of all the steps which were put into the soil preparation. However, just as important, one must document how the different sections of land vary inherently, by soil temperature, sunlight acquisition, pH balance, and so on.
