Gary Paul Nabhan, know as the “father of the local food movement,” knows how to grow food that’s healthy and profitable––even during times of drought and climate disruption.
Trees are an important part of most ecosystems, and they can actually make a great contribution to agriculture by providing everything from shade to soil health, water retention, wind breaks, and marketable products.
Cooling the earth’s climate is not just about cutting emissions––it’s about removing masses of carbon from the air. Karl Thidemann of Soil4Climate makes the case that the secret of sequestration is in the soil––with win-win benefits for ecosystems, nutrition, profitability, and community.
Zach Weiss has seen land so degraded that even weeds couldn’t grow…and helped transform it into healthy, living landscapes by changing the flow of water and letting nature do most of the work. The implications for agriculture, wildlife, and climate are huge.
The name of Pamela Tanner Boll‘s new film, To Which We Belong, comes from the great naturalist and conservationist Aldo Leopold, who understood the interconnection among all living beings, and the need to treat land with respect––and a deep sense of belonging.
In her new book, Judith Schwartz takes us to five continents and tell us stories of people restoring devastated landscapes–and overcoming deep conflicts that stem from degraded ecosystems. The results are phenomenal.
Ronnie Cummins analyzes what’s not working about our food system and lays out a blueprint for change — while reminding us that regenerative agriculture is ultimately a necessity.
Who are the adults in the room? The kids, apparently. We talk to four young New Mexicans taking action against climate disruption. They’re part of a world-wide climate strike on September 20.
What do we see when we put aside the lenses of hope and optimism and look with clear eyes at climate disruption? In today’s program we travel with journalist Dahr Jamail, who paints a picture of beauty and danger–and asks each of us what we’re called to do in response.
Ticks are tiny, eight-legged creatures who are proliferating as the climate warms. They carry an array of diseases that can disable and even kill–and our health providers and public health systems have yet to fully address the gravity of the threat.
