Have gotten a couple of emails about the Ecology and Sustainability: Food and Agriculture series at Xavier for 2009-10. And just found in the old mail a flyer about it. Looks terrific!
September 27 is Michael Pollan, best selling author, talking about “The Omnivore’s Solution.” Vandana Shiva, physicist, author and environmental activist from India, is up on October 28 on “Soil, Not Oil: Food Security in Times of Climate Change.” “Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations”, with David Montgomery, is March 14.
The series finishes with a bang: on April 11, Wendell Berry, Wes Jackson and Gene Logsdon hold “An Informal Conversation”, followed the next day by Wes Jackson discussing “The Necessity and Possibility of an Agriculture Where Nature Is the Measure”.
