In the current era of large corporations creating and satisfying (meeting) consumer demand through mono-culture and “big ag” technology, there is a revolution, of sorts, to eat local and organic, protect the diversity of foods, identify and avoid the harmful chemicals built into the process, and enjoy preparing and eating food at the same time. And what does the future hold for Pennsylvania as we transition to a climate similar to that of Georgia today?
Join West Chester University Office of Sustainability, Sierra Club, and Chester County Citizens for Climate Protection (4CP) for a spring program of lectures, film, demonstration and discussion about today’s food challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.
Climate change, desertification, loss of biodiversity, droughts, floods, malnutrition and obesity are issues confronting citizens around the globe.
Judith D. Schwartz, author of “Cows Save the Planet and Other Improbable Ways of Restoring Soil to Heal the Earth” and grazing expert is able to offer solutions to these issues by looking first to the soil.
Join us to find out how consumers, activists, entrepreneurs/companies and investors are working toward solutions by creating food, clothing and personal care production systems that restore our ecosystems while providing basic goods to their communities.
Judith will look at how meat, dairy, leather and wool operations are at the forefront of restoring and replenishing our soils and ecosystems and while doing so are helping to mitigate climate change and reviving local economies.
