soil 3The problem with climate change is too much, and a growing amount, of carbon in the atmosphere (primarily as carbon dioxide and methane). There are soils everywhere with the potential to capture and retain carbon. What about soils makes it possible to be a potential solution? What might that solution look like? Elizabeth will present a view into the often overlooked and highly valuable soils. We celebrate the International Year of the Soil with a closer look at something we all depend on. 



  • What is soil?
  • What makes it such a valuable ecosystem?
  • What are current problem areas?
  • How can soil offer a solution?
