Public Talk by Gidon Eshel, Research Professor, Environmental and Urban Studies at Bard College
Respondent: Will Brinton, soil scientist and founder Woods End Laboratories
Hawthorne Valley and the Institute for Mindful Agriculture present a public talk by Gidon Eshel, Research Professor, Environmental and Urban Studies at Bard College. Agroecology offers examples of solutions to the related crises of climate, soil, food, and health in many localities, but can it offer solutions at the global scale? Considering planetary boundaries such as erosion, topsoil loss, and land degradation, how do we scale up local, ecologically-minded agriculture? How do we think about the basic conundrum of finite land with rising population and standards of living? Taking the Northeast as a case study, could we feed ourselves while tending to the resilience of climate, soil, food and our own health?
Suggested donation $10. This talk is part of the “Climate, Soil, Food, Health–It’s all Connected!” Winter Workshop. Click here for more information.
