Hi everyone,

This weekend was World Soil Day, a call we should all heed to push for a real change to our agricultural systems. Soil regeneration is an integral part of ecosystem restoration and carbon sequestration–an urgent piece of the solution to the climate crisis–not to mention food production for the billions of humans on Earth. And yet, industrial agricultural and our frenzied consumption of the earth's resources are degrading our topsoil at a dangerous pace.  

Read our latest blog post: World Soil Day Should Be a Call to Change How We Grow Food. And be sure to share. Let's not let the false solutions of more tech and grazing drown out our voices

This Saturday, our webinar will dig deeper into the importance of soil regeneration and how agriculture constitutes the prime area for this focus. We will be joined by Dr. Amir Kassam, a conservation agriculture expert whose many roles include Moderator of the UNFAO-hosted Global Platform for Conservation Agriculture Community of Practice. We are also joined by Helen Atthowe, an agroecological farmer and researcher with decades of experience in various parts of the United States. Helen's farm was recognized with a Steward of Sustainable Agriculture Award at the 32nd Annual EcoFarm Conference.

Register here and donate here to keep these webinars accessible to people of all income levels.

Finally, the founders of Veganic Agriculture Network are launching an online veganic gardening course this January. This is an excellent opportunity to receive quality training from two experienced gardeners and educators who have already trained hundreds to grow their own food. Check out their website and their facebook page

Not keen on growing your own food? You can still help grow a veganic world by donating to our Veganic World fundraiser–even the smallest donations make a difference. You can also support us by designating Seed the Commons/Millahcayotl Association as your beneficiary on Amazon Smile. We do not encourage you to start shopping on Amazon, but if you already do, it's best to turn some of those funds away from Jeff Bezos and towards community organizations.    

Happy World Soil Day–let’s hope 2020 galvanizes us to make the changes that matter!
