Good Cause Eco Sangha: A Mindful Approach to Climate Change
Apr 01, 2017 01:10AM
On April 16, 3–5 p.m., join Good Cause Eco Shanga, a community program supported by Sarasota Mindfulness Institute, which meets monthly in the Unitarian Universalist Church library. This month’s meeting will focus on how climate change impacts soil and agriculture. This group is open to the public at no charge. Donations are accepted to cover the room rental.
Soil is a critical component of the agricultural systems and natural resources on which we all depend for food, feed, fiber and bioenergy. Climate change is causing increased soil erosion due to flooding, desiccation due to drought, and changes in soil chemistry and biology. Increased temperatures cause a decline in soil organic carbon and an increase in CO2 emissions. To maintain food security, agricultural practices must develop and apply innovative conservation methods.
