In the face of climate change, healthy soils can remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil. It can change agriculture and land management from a major cause of climate change to a solution within reach!
Whether you live in an urban or rural area, we can all participate in regenerating land by capturing carbon through plants with Soil Health, one of the most important Natural Climate Solutions!
On January 8, 2019, we will talk about how soil health for carbon drawdown and water abundance reduces the risks from climate change:
- How does Soil Health provide climate change solutions?
- How can Soil Health restore water cycles?
- How can Soil Health benefit our food systems?
- What can we do in our gardens, farms, communities and throughout our state?
From our local forestry professionals to our local farmers, wine growers and home gardeners, many in Mendocino are already leading the way. The conversations on January 8 will be useful for community members to learn & share these cool techniques, put them into practice in our own gardens, community or school gardens, and interact with those who are already practicing carbon storage and soil health strategies.
Continuing to take climate change seriously and advocating for state, national and worldwide climate recovery is essential. There are many ways to respond to climate change and Soil Health is a specific approach that each and every one of us can do!
YOU, too, can be a part of the climate change solution!
Join us Tuesday, January 8, 2019, 6:00 pm, Caspar Community Center - Hosted by the League of Women Voters of Mendocino County.
