Throughout history, civilizations have withered and even disappeared after destroying their once-fertile soils. We now risk repeating this age-old trauma on a global scale due to ongoing soil-degradation, climate change, and rapidly rising populations.
But UW Professor David R. Montgomery offers reasons for hope in this lecture, based on his recent book, "Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life", published in May by W. W. Norton. This Orcas Currents event will begin at 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, 2017, in Orcas Center.
