Healing Grounds: Connecting Regeneration, Farming, and Reparations (Zoom)
November 15, 2022 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
Liz Carlisle will present on a powerful land movement happening in this country: she has followed the story of four Indigenous, Black, Latinx, and Asian American regenerative farmers who are reviving their ancestors’ methods of growing food—techniques long suppressed by the industrial food system. These farmers are restoring native prairies, nurturing beneficial fungi, and enriching soil health. While feeding their communities and revitalizing cultural ties to land, they are steadily stitching ecosystems back together and repairing the natural carbon cycle. Carlisle will show how this kind of regenerative farming will require reckoning with our nation’s agricultural history—a history marked by discrimination and displacement. And it will ultimately require dismantling power structures that have blocked many farmers of color from owning land or building wealth. She will help us understand that we can not only heal our planet, we can also heal our communities and ourselves.
Tuesday, November 15th, 7 – 8 p.m. CDT. The zoom link will be sent on the morning of the program.
$10/person. Registration ends on Monday, November 14.
Presenter: Liz Carlisle is Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies Program at the University of California Santa Barbara. She is the author of Healing Grounds: Climate, Justice, and the Deep Roots of Regenerative Farming and Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America.
