Relocalizing Vermont, Thursday 9 a.m.: Carbon in soil & money; faith and resilience

COMING UP THURSDAY at 9 a.m. on Goddard College Community Radio—sucking carbon out of the atmosphere into the soil; pulling your retirement dollars out of fossil fuels; and putting community resilience and faith-based communities together.

9:00 – 10:00 a.m.
Seth Itzkan is co-founder of Soil4Climate.org. He’ll preview the talk on Vermont-based and global efforts to address climate change by using agriculture to suck carbon out of the atmosphere and putting it back where (some of) it belongs—in the soil. The talk  is Thursday night at 6 p.m. at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library, part of Transition Town Montpelier’s Third Thursdays series. Jesse McDougall of Pullman Farm in Shaftsbury is a co-presenter.

Todd Walker is a financial advisor at www.greenvest.net, which advises clients on how to invest their money to meet their own definitions of social responsibility. He’ll be one of three panelists in an upcoming workshop  on how individuals can divest their financial portfolio from fossil fuels—and what good it could do. The workshop is Saturday, May 21, 10 a.m. to 12:15 at Capstone Community Action in Barre.
Ruah Swennerfelt’s new book is Rising to the Challenge: The Transition Movement and People of Faith, a book for those who see green faith as part of a sustainable human presence on planet Earth.
10:00 – 10:30 a.m.
Resilience Thoughts, a locally told extemporaneous story by Farid Quraishi, plus upcoming events related to energy, food, and the local economy at the end of the age of oil.
