Hope in the Garden: Healthy Soils

January 14, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

Janet Powers is an ecological landscape designer and art maker who has lived, gardened and farmed in Bedford, MA for the past 27 years. She earned a BS from the School of Natural Resources, University of Vermont, where she studied Park Management, and a MA from the Conway School of Landscape Design.

When parenting full time, Janet shifted her focus to farming and permaculture, and fell in love with soil. She continues to learn through numerous organic farmers and climate-change organizations.

Connecting with nature is at the heart of what she does, and most recently that has included making art. Through images and story-telling, Janet will share her understanding of soils past and present and principles that gardeners can apply to improve their soil.

Janet teaches that healthy soils are key to restoring our planetary water, carbon and nutrient cycles. While switching away from fossil fuel use is critical to slowing climate change, she will discuss how, by regenerating our soil carbon sponge, we can start reversing it.
