Didi Pershouse, author of The Ecology of Care



The Hidden Life of Soil

Our guest presenter, Didi Pershouse, is the author of The Ecology of Care and has been active with the Soil Carbon Coalition.

Many of us have been learning about the “hidden life of trees” and how they function via underground fungal networks. Didi will be talking with us about how those networks depend on a well-functioning “soil carbon sponge”: a layer of the landscape that keeps the water cycle — and the carbon cycle — going. The health — or ill health — of this soil sponge connects to cycles of drought and flooding, heat waves, algae blooms, and all sorts of other climate-related phenomena.

So we hope you’ll join us for this informative presentation that promises to deepen our understanding of global environmental systems — and to provide lots of practical tips on how we can support the living soil in our own surroundings.
