Soil and Survival: Soil Restoration to Help Reverse Climate Change

April 28, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us at 6:30 for the potluck or 7:00 for the presentation.
** Bring a dish to share if you can, but come either way! **

In December, Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, tweeted that soil was “a rising star” at the Paris climate talks. Join us at this JP Forum to explore the reasons for that hopeful statement. We’ll consider the promise of soil restoration to capture carbon while providing benefits for food production and ecosystems. We will also discuss the opportunity to strengthen the climate movement by including nature as an ally and enlisting the agricultural sector. Please join us to find out how soil restoration can help mitigate climate change!

Our speakers are include:

* Seth Itzkan is co-founder of Soil4Climate.
* Quinton Zondervan is president of the Climate Action Business Association.
* Kannan Thiruvengadam runs a community farm in East Boston using permaculture principles.
* A representative from the French consulate, who will speak the French commitment to recapture carbon through soil sequestration
