Kristin Ohlson with The Soil Will Save Us (May 10)
Join us at The Learned Owl as we welcome author Kristin Ohlson with her book The Soil Will Save Us. Start your planting season off with a fascinating read about the condition of farming and the environment and how we can all make a difference.
Thousands of years of poor farming and ranching practices - and, especially, modern industrial agriculture - have led to the loss of up to 80 percent of carbon from the world's soils. That carbon is now floating in the atmosphere, and even if we stopped using fossil fuels today, it would continue warming the planet. In The Soil Will Save Us, journalist and bestselling author Kristin Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for "our great green hope" - a way in which we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbon - and potentially reverse global warming.
