Panel Discussion: The Soil Will Save Us

This event has passed.

Join CUESA and Book Passage for a panel discussion about the earth beneath our feet with journalist and bestselling authorKristin Ohlson and a panel of soil experts.

Soil is easily dismissed as “just dirt,” but it is one of the most important resources on the planet, and its health affects us all. Ohlson’s new book, The Soil Will Save Usexplains how poor farming and ranching practices—especially modern industrial agriculture—have led to the loss of up to 80 percent of the carbon from the world’s soils. That carbon is now in the atmosphere, heating up the planet. Ohlson makes an elegantly argued case for “our great green hope,” a way in which we can not only heal the land but also potentially reverse global warming.

The talk will be followed by a reception and book signing, with refreshments from the farmers market. Books will be for sale by Book Passage.

Space is limited.
