Climate Week Event: The Power of Plants & the Secrets of the Soil



Wouldn’t it be amazing if there were a new technology that could pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere to reverse climate change? It’s exists! But, it isn’t new–it’s ancient. It’s a power only plants have and a secret only the soil knows: How to use photosynthesis to draw carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it underground. Restoring the world’s forests, wetlands and coastal ecosystems can help bring the carbon cycle back into balance. We can also enlist crop and pasture lands in this effort through regenerative, organic and agro-ecological methods that sequester carbon while growing healthy, nutrient-dense food. Join us for a conversation with experts from Regeneration International to learn about the global movement for ecosystem restoration. Cosponsored by NY Grassroots Alliance and Slow Food NYC.

What are my public transportation options for getting to and from the event?

The NY Botanical Garden’s Ross Lecture Hall is closest to the Mosholu Entrance. NYBG is just 20 minutes from Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan via Metro-North and is also accessible by the B, D, 4 and 2 trains. Detailed directions for taking public transit to NYBG are available here.
