What we're about

Before the pandemic, we got together to learn, discuss, understand - to spread hope for a livable climate in the decades to come by sharing knowledge of regenerative practices that work to sequester carbon and cool the local and global climate. Our community members are gardeners, growers, ecologists, climate activists, scientists, writers, researchers, innovators, local foodies, policy makers, educators, leaders, futurists, organizers, parents, Slow Money and Slow Food types, holistic thinkers, and anyone curious about how biology shapes Earth. Among other activities, we had a monthly potluck dinner and lively presentations and discussions, usually on Sunday evenings. Topics varied, but all center around how ecological and regenerative resource management can reverse the effects of global warming. By shifting our thinking to see the world in wholes, we can collaborate and take action now. Let's all be part of the worldwide mobilization of the biosphere to restore damaged ecosystems and reverse global warming. If you take a look at our group photo, you'll see how reviving soil health can bring down carbon from the atmosphere, and all it takes is letting biodiversity - above and below the ground - thrive.

We hope to return to those in-person meetings when it's clearly safe, but in the meanwhile we have a number of online events - and you're invited! Please visit our website at https://bio4climate.org to see what we're up to.

Maya Dutta, Assistant Director of Regenerative Projects at Bio4Climate will share her work on Miyawaki Forests, which includes caring for the first forest of this kind planted in the Northeast US in Danehy Park, Cambridge in September 2021. She will share the story of that project and ongoing rewilding work in the Greater Boston area and beyond, and discuss how this method and other forms of ecosystem restoration can build community resilience, equity, and wellbeing while addressing global climate change.

This presentation and Q&A session will run for approximately an hour and a half, from 3 – 4:30pm ET. It will take place in the auditorium of the Cambridge Public Library – Main Branch at 449 Broadway.
