    Journalist Judith Schwartz, author of "Cows Save the Planet, and other Improbable Ways of Restoring Soil to Heal the Earth" will be in Thetford Center on Tuesday, November 4th for a reading, potluck (optional), and discussion. When I read her book last year, it filled me with hope, changed my view of life on our planet, and reoriented my career plans for the future. Here's what she plans to talk about: "Soil, that humble stuff we often take for granted, can be seen as a hub for our many challenges. Taking a "soils-eye" view of our predicaments opens up many possible solutions. For instance, once we understand that over time more CO2 has gone into the atmosphere from the soil compared to the burning of fossil fuels, we can explore means of returning carbon to the soil--namely through regenerative agricultural practices. Given the state of global climate change negotiations, we can't stop emissions immediately--let alone unburn the fossil fuels we've already used--but we can change how we treat the land and grow and produce food. As for cows...depending on how livestock are managed, they can either be destructive or serve as a tool for large-scale land restoration as well as a food source. It's up to us.
