Emerging Issues – December 12th, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Can Ordinary Farmers Reverse Global Warming and Keep a Better Hold on Their Farms? – Presented by Stu Krebs and Ken Dolezal

Some farmers are doing these things already through regenerative agriculture.   And when they’ve gotten into it, it’s easier, cheaper and more fun than what most other farmers are doing these days.  We will start our session with a 16-minute YouTube video of North Dakota farmer Gabe Brown describing what he does on his farm and how it, and the results of it, differ from conventional agriculture.  We will also look at the removal of carbon from the atmosphere and storage in the soil through the operation of regenerative agriculture on American and world farmlands, and the possible effect on climate change.

 

Join us to explore local, state, and international issues.  This group seeks to understand varied perspectives and examine new ideas for problem solving.  Everyone with an interest in such matters and a willingness to discuss them in a completely civil manner is invited.

The group meets in the Montrose Regional Library Meeting Room from 6:30 – 8:30 pm on one Thursday each month, May through January.
