Have you heard about the revolution going on in agriculture? Did you know it can reverse climate change and can help us feed the world?
There is a misconception that agriculture is a bad thing when it comes to climate change - we know about methane emissions from cows, clearcutting the rainforest for beef feed, tilling and monocropping throughout the midwest and central valley that kills the soil and caused the Dust Bowl - but what you may not have heard is that there is a (not so silent) shift in agriculture going on in a BIG WAY all over the planet, and it is transforming our food system, how we think about the future of farming, and can help us reverse climate change while making our food systems better (stronger, more nutritious and more profitable for small, local, organic farmers).
Food and Agriculture are the key to improving human health, build healthy communities and prepare for the impacts that climate chaos will bring. Come learn about the transformation in agriculture, its benefits to our lives and the lives of many generations to come, if we are successful in adopting these new practices rapidly enough to combat the worst of climate change. At the least, you'll learn about something inspiring and surround yourself with people who are also curious and care about how to address the most pressing challenges of our time.
We can solve big problems if we come together to listen, learn and share knowledge and experience. That is precisely what the Monadnock Drawdown group is doing at Repair Cafe every month.
