Savor: The Dirt-y Solution to Climate Change

June 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

$5 – $25

Does a solution to climate change lay in the dirt under our feet? A holistic approach to farming and the environment is ancient, while informing decisions based on science and data is relatively new. Regenerative agriculture is the paradox of old practices and new methods with promising solutions to climate change while fostering agricultural sustainability and resilience. We will explore what regenerative agriculture means, how it works, the challenges, and what you can do to support it.

Register for the in-person event OR the virtual presentation.
