Climate and Community Resilience: Lessons from the Soil


Six Spring Events
to Unpack What Creating Our Future Looks Like



IMPORTANT NOTE ON THIS WEBINAR EVENT

As a precaution to limit the spread of the Coronavirus and to safeguard the health and well-being of everyone, the series will be modified to a webinar format.

Local health officials and CDC recommendations are to limit public events and encourage self-distancing.

Strengthening community and providing space for people to connect and learn together has suddenly become a more urgent need. We need each other now more than ever. To increase accessibility and safety we will plan to host the entire series in webinar format using Zoom.

When it becomes safe again to commune together publicly we will switch back to in-person gatherings. We will keep everyone informed to changes as the uncertain future unfolds.

Please register to receive updates.

You will need to download Zoom in order to participate.


Event Info

What is good for the soil is good for our communities. Deep healthy soil governs flood resilience, clean water, strong local economies, and a myriad of ecological functions. Lessons from the soil--such as interdependence, biodiversity, and resource cycling--can help us to understand the past and create the future for the Upper Valley.

In these times of great ecological, social, and economic transformation, this series of six programs will unpack the science of whole systems landscape function, explore how land and society change together, and offer practical ways to engage with the land around you for community resilience and social justice. This series aims to expand the base of active “doers” who work together to build a more livable, resilient region and planet.

All Sessions are Free and Open to All.
Refreshments and childcare available at each event. Registration is encouraged.



Session 1: Sunday, March 22, 2-6 pm

Earth's Cycles: Foundations of Energy and Matter

Framing the entire series, this event introduces cycles of energy and matter that create a livable planet. The soil health principles provide a lens to understand how systems work together and to identify points of intervention where changes have been - and can be - made to influence climate and ecology.
