Food Chain Restoration in the Face of Climate Change

Recent years have brought spikes in the frequency of strange weather patterns and severe storms, with many blaming the increase on human-caused climate change. If this new normal, as it’s being called, is here to stay, it will have profound implications on food production. To address these challenges, food and farming activist Gary Paul Nabhan proposes that we look to the past for solutions—at crops and techniques used in regions that have historically endured this kind of weather. Hear his thoughts about the need for increased biodiversity on farmlands and how certain strategies can play a role in relinking the broken food chain and adapting to accelerating climate change. Nabhan was chosen as an Utne Reader visionary in 2011.

    Meant to say that I wish I could go to this, also. They should be companion events!

    Coincidentally this is on the same night as another event which I will be attending: Hope for a Livable Climate, happening in Harvard Sq. at the United Lutheran Church on Winthrop St. Stories of regenerated soils and biodiversity that are reviving food and water and rural communities--from Zimbabwe villages to ranches in the American West to small farms in New England.
