Welcome to our website!

We are Dig2Grow, a husband & wife and a pair of writers.  Dave is a broad-minded geologist and Anne is a free-range biologist with a bad case of plant lust.  We chose "Dig2Grow" because that's what happens when you write, talk, and act on things that matter to the well-being of people and our one-and-only planet. 

Somewhat to our surprise, we have an environmental trilogy on our hands. First there was Dirt—about the plight of soil and what we've done to it since the dawn of agriculture.  Then came The Hidden Half of Nature, a revealing exploration of how microbial life underpins the health of soil and, even our own bodies.  Now we have Growing a Revolution, a way to transform farming practices so that agriculture can help cure what ails the land. 

Feel free to reach out to us via our contact page if would like to book us for an event, obtain autographed books, or have other questions.

Happy reading!

Dave & Anne
