2nd Wednesday Lecture: Edible Gardens and Climate Change
April 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Edible Gardens and Climate Change: What you can do to improve food production and reduce atmospheric carbon
In this presentation, we will start by going over the formation of soil structure and texture, and atmospheric/terrestrial carbon cycles. With this background knowledge, we will discuss how climate change is affected by rising levels of carbon dioxide, and discuss gardening practices that release and sequester carbon and carbon dioxide. We will also go in-depth at how atmospheric carbon dioxide and soil carbon levels affect plant growth.
