Panel discussion on "Soil Health, Agriculture and Climate in New England" GDAE in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Boston
Thursday, April, 4th 2019 at 4 PM – 6 PM Paige Hall Terrace Room at Tufts University, 12 Upper Campus Road Medford, MA 02155
Presentations at the panel will reflect the work of a team of food system advocates, including farmers, researchers, students, and policymakers aiming to launch a Soil Health Initiative that will enhance and expand the regional system of soil management in New England States. This effort is being undertaken with support from the international 4 per 1000 Initiative launched by the French government, which aims to promote greenhouse gas emissions reduction though greater carbon absorption in agricultural soils. “4 per 1000” refers to the great potential for carbon absorption through practices that increase soil carbon sequestration by 0.4% per year, both to combat climate change and to increase food security.
