The Dirt on Soil: A Two Part Online Event Series on Regenerative Farming and Healthy Soil
June 16, 2022 12:00 PM
Healthy soil plays a vital role in the nutrient density of our food, can help prevent agricultural runoff and erosion, and has a direct impact on our changing climate. And yet, by ignoring what’s directly beneath our feet, we can expect to lose all of the world’s topsoil within a single generation and see a needless rise in the accumulation of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere.
Join us for a special two-part online event series where we’ll explore why soil health matters, how it’s related to our worsening climate crisis, and what individuals and communities can do to protect it.
In the first half of our two-part online event series on Thursday, June 16th, we'll learn why soil matters and how the health of our soil has a direct correlation to the worsening climate crisis.
David Montgomery is a geologist who studies landscape evolution and the effects of geological processes on ecological systems and human societies. He has written a number of popular science books, three of which won the Washington State Book Award. His recent book, Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life, focused on the potential for regenerative farming practice to reshape agriculture, and the forthcoming book co-authored with Anne Biklé, What Your Food Ate: How to Heal Our Land and Reclaim Our Health, explores the links between soil health and human health.
