Growing Climate Solutions in Healthy Soil


February 28, 2022 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Online Event

Presented By: Isabelle Jenniches & Claudia Reynoso, NM Healthy Soil Working Group

Restoring soil health holds the promise of reversing climate change by drawing down carbon from the atmosphere, and rebalancing the water cycle in our arid environment. It’s a simple and effective solution to a multitude of fundamental problems caused by exploitative and extractive industrial systems –and yet it is not often discussed or understood within the climate movement.

This talk will provide an overview of the principles of soil health, what the climate benefits are and how you can get involved in advancing this important climate solution!
