Earth-Friendly Book Club Discussion – June 2017

June 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In June, the GARNA Earth-Friendly Book Club will be discussing Grass, Soil, Hope by Courtney White with a forward by Michael Pollan. From the Amazon review: “Right now, the only possibility of large-scale removal of greenhouse gases from the atmosphere is through plant photosynthesis and related land-based carbon sequestration activities. These include a range of already existing, low-tech, and proven practices: composting, no-till farming, climate-friendly livestock practices, conserving natural habitat, restoring degraded watersheds and rangelands, increasing biodiversity, and producing local food. In Grass, Soil, Hope, the author shows how all these practical strategies can be bundled together into an economic and ecological whole, with the aim of reducing atmospheric CO2 while producing substantial co-benefits for all living things. Soil is a huge natural sink for carbon dioxide. If we can draw increasing amounts carbon out of the atmosphere and store it safely in the soil then we can significantly address all the multiple challenges that now appear so intractable.”

Most monthly meetings are held the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Book Haven. If you are interested in joining, and are a GARNA member, please email Marilyn Moore.
