FOOD WEEK: Cows Save the Planet Oct. 22, 2013

cows save the planet

Williams College Tuesday October 22nd,

6:30 pm  Griffin Hall, room 3

In Cows Save the Planet, journalist Judith Schwartz looks at soil as a crucible for our many overlapping environmental, economic, and social crises. She reveals that for many of these problems-climate change, desertification, biodiversity loss, droughts, floods, wildfires, rural poverty, malnutrition, and obesity-our ability to turn these crises into opportunities depends on how we treat the soil.
