The Power of Plants & Secrets of Soil

Wouldn't it be amazing if there were a new technology that could pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere to reverse climate change? It's exists! But, it isn't new—it's ancient. It's a power only plants have and a secret only the soil knows: How to use photosynthesis to draw carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it underground.

Restoring the world's forests, wetlands and coastal ecosystems can help bring the carbon cycle back into balance. We can also enlist crop and pasture lands in this effort through regenerative, organic and agro-ecological methods that sequester carbon while growing healthy food.

Join us for a conversation with experts from Regeneration International to learn about the global movement for ecosystem restoration. Cosponsored by NY Grassroots Alliance and Slow Food NYC.

This event is part of the Food, Land and Nature-Based Solutions program of Climate Week NYC.
