The Soil Series: Grassroots for the Climate Emergency
Speakers: Mindy Blank, Simon Dennis, Chris Wood, Henry Harris
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.
Mycelium are a dynamic underground network of fungi that enable biological nutrient cycling. The social mycelium mimics this collective intelligence on a human scale with symbiotic interconnections that support the whole. What does it mean to build resilient communities and who will do the work?
