Seeds of Hope
Eating with HOPE: Healing Our Precious Earth
by Regenerating our Soil
Sunday, May 2, 2021
1:30-3:30 p.m. EDT
(a free Zoom gathering open to all)
Whether you farm, grow a garden, or consume food, you are determining how much the earth’s soil is releasing C02, methane and nitrous oxide into the atmosphere. Modern high-tilling, fertilizer-intensive, monocultural farming practices release the very carbon and methane that sound farming practices keep in the soil. We vote for more or less climate change with every meal we eat, plant we grow, or food scrap we dispose of.
At our May 2 Seeds of Hope, we will watch the highly-acclaimed film “Kiss the Ground.” It explains how regenerating the earth’s soil has the potential to rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems, and create abundant food supplies. This film explains why transitioning to regenerative agriculture could be key in rehabilitating the planet, and it points us to ways that we can be agents of hope with every bite we take.
After seeing the film, we will explore very practical ways that each of us can help the soil sequester carbon, heal the earth and keep the climate stable, as it did for millions of years before “modern agriculture” began degrading it.
The event is free, because the film screening has been sponsored by grant funds. Register here to receive your Zoom link. When you register, you will immediately receive a registration confirmation and Zoom link by email.
Please join the meeting by 1:30pm, as the doors will close promptly at 1:35. And plan to stay until 3:30, so you can leave with practical ideas for eating with HOPE--Healing Our Precious Earth.
Seeds of Hope is a monthly open gathering that inspires, equips, and empowers participants to live into the vision of an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, and socially just human presence on our planet.
These gatherings are designed to:
Open our eyes, minds, and hearts to places where society’s paradigm of separation, domination and exploitation is creating pain, fear, anger, or suffering.
Develop awareness of our personal responses to disturbing information.
Move from reactivity to creativity, so that we can embody the change we wish to see in the world.
Support ourselves and others to live in active mindfulness, interconnectedness, hope, play, and joy.
