The Soil Series: Grassroots for the Climate Emergency

Speakers: Katherine Oaks, Maddie Kempner, Sha'an Mouliert, Cheryl Herrick

A collaboration between Building A Local Economy (BALE) and Vermont Healthy Soils Coalition (VHSC) with sponsorship by Rural Vermont

Calling all land managers, farmers, gardeners, seed savers, citizen scientists, conservationists, town planners,  educators, healers, and advocates, join us for a series of critical conversations about soil health and how we can become response-able to meet the climate emergency we face with confidence. There will be great food provided before and, following powerful panel dialogues guided by VHSC members, audience discussion on topics of food, soil, water, health, climate and hope. Together, we can explore what is possible in rehabilitating Vermont's soil health to hold our landscapes and communities together. This potent – and important – six-part series takes place on Wednesdays starting Feb. 27 at the Bethany Church in Randolph. Suggested donation $5 (donations not necessary). Each program features a social half-hour with great food provided by Black Krim Tavern, Randolph. Registration is not required.

When people are left out of shaping the solutions to the problems they face, the solutions fail. To make a new food system we need everyone at the table, listening and communicating.How can we build a food system that creates options for people, and doesn’t leave anyone out, in order to ensure real and lasting sustainability? Stories can amplify the voices of people all across the food system. Let us listen.
