Climate Change, Food, and Landscapes

by Eric Toensmeier

Friday, March 6, 7:30 pm, Campus Center Carroll Room
Followed by a reception and Bulb Show preview at the Lyman Plant House
Free and open to the public

What we eat, how we manage our landscapes, and how our food is grown have a huge impact on climate change. In fact the food system is responsible for almost a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions – yet it also offers great promise as part of the solution. This presentation will introduce practical steps you can take at many levels: in your garden, in your kitchen, and the farms and ecosystems in your community.
