"No matter what the climate is, people can make their soil better." – Kristin Ohlson

Thousands of years of poor farming and ranching practices—and, especially, modern industrial agriculture—have led to the loss of up to 80 percent of carbon from the world’s soils. That carbon is now floating in the atmosphere, and even if we stopped using fossil fuels today, it would continue warming the planet.

Join us for a conversation with Kristin Ohlson, journalist and author of The Soil Will Save Us, and discover the ways we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbon—and finally get some traction on reducing the load of greenhouse gases that are warming the planet.
