Event by: Biodiversity for a Livable Climate
About: Potluck starts at 6, discussion at 7. Judy Schwartz, journalist and author of two recent books – Cows Save the Planet, and Water in Plain Sight – has been traveling the world to report on the accelerating momentum of Regenerative Agriculture. Scientists and activists are increasingly finding ecological approaches to producing food and fiber. Major NGOs and the business world are now taking note. In the past few years, Judy has encountered numerous innovative efforts to restore land and ecosystem function while addressing climate change and enhancing opportunities for local communities: from “Climate Beneficial Wool” and “regenerative wine” in the U.S. to reviving culinary plants like mesquite (for baking) and agave in Mexico, to promoting mulberry enterprises in war-torn Afghanistan. She’ll offer a global overview of this rapidly growing movement.
