The Soil Series: Grassroots for the Climate Emergency

Where: Bethany Church, Randolph
When: Wednesdays 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM

A collaboration between Building A Local Economy (BALE) and Vermont Healthy Soils Coalition (VHSC)

Calling all land managers, farmers, gardeners, seed savers, citizen scientists, conservationists, town planners,  educators, healers, and advocates! Join us for a series of critical conversations about soil health and how we can become response-able to meet the climate emergency we face with confidence.

There will be great food provided before and, following powerful panel dialogues guided by VHSC members, audience discussion on topics of food, soil, water, health, climate and hope. Together, we can explore what is possible in rehabilitating Vermont’s soil health to hold our landscapes and communities together.

Suggested donation $5 (donations not necessary).

Each program features a social half-hour with great food provided by Black Krim Tavern, Randolph
