July 3, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
The SFRR Book Group will be reading the book the soil will save us. How Scientists, Farmers, and Foodies are Healing the Soil to Save the Planet, by 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. In The Soil Will Save Us!, journalist and bestselling author Kristin Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for “our great green hope”—a way in which we can.” (Rodale Books)
