March 20 Event: It’s All About the Soil – Farming on a hot planet

Slow Food Russian River is excited to present best-selling author and educator Anna Lappé and leading climate and food policy activists Diana Donlonand Michael Dimock. Join us Sunday, March 20 at Green String Farm in Petaluma for this stimulating, thought-provoking 4-hour event that explores the connection of soil, farming and climate change.

Climate change is forcing us to rethink farming methods. Globally, more than twice as much carbon is stored in our soil as in our living vegetation. Maintaining that soil and getting more carbon sequestered in the land is a key part of mitigating the crisis. The farmer is a great, untapped resource in the fight against climate change. Hear about solutions emerging from the land:  from the soil, the crops, and the farmers who are employing climate-friendly methods to restore and regenerate the soil. Learn how your informed choices about your diet and your garden have an impact. And how Sonoma County and California are leading the way.
