Dash Nesbitt rsvped for Saxony Book Club: Growing a Revolution by David R. Montgomery 2021-08-21 16:07:17 -0400
Join DA Saxony and the newly formed DAG Climate Caucus on September 26 to discuss Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life by David R. Montgomery.
You might have seen Kiss the Ground recommended to you on Netflix recently. While we highly recommend watching it, this book is also an in-depth analysis of the material covered in the documentary. David R. Montgomery is a MacArthur Fellow and geomorphology professor, internationally recognized for his studies on "landscape evolution and the effects of geological processes on ecological systems and human societies."
It can be exhausting to read tragic climate crisis stories constantly in the news, so that's why we're offering you a chance to meet with like-minded individuals who care about the environment. We hope to rejuvenate your passion about this issue and brainstorm possible solutions within our reach as Americans overseas.
"For centuries, agricultural practices have eroded the soil that farming depends on, stripping it of the organic matter vital to its productivity. Now conventional agriculture is threatening disaster for the world's growing population. In Growing a Revolution, geologist David R. Montgomery travels the world, meeting farmers at the forefront of an agricultural movement to restore soil health. From Kansas to Ghana, he sees why adopting the three tenets of conservation agriculture – ditching the plow, planting cover crops, and growing a diversity of crops – is the solution. When farmers restore fertility to the land, this helps feed the world, cool the planet, reduce pollution, and return profitability to family farms." – Goodreads.com

Most of my heroes are women. My mother, an artist and writer, possesses the most adventurous, curious and brilliant mind I've ever known and inspires me unendingly as I travel through life. My wife, a professional violist, is easily one of the boldest, most exciting musicians I've had the pleasure to hear perform live; she gives me the drive to achieve my best in my own musical career. Among those who influence me from afar are the likes of Greta Thunberg, Malala Yousafzai, Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Cara Santa Maria. Women have had an unequal effect on the person I am today, and it's high time they are no longer treated unequally in our otherwise modern country. Equal treatment is the least we can ask for and we should settle for no less. Let us delay no longer. Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment immediately! Oklahoma voter, German resident.
