Quivira' ~ Annual Conference - "The Carbon Ranch: Using Food and Stewardship to Build Soil and Fight Climate Change"

November 10-12, 2010- Albuguerque New Mexico - The Quivira Coalition will be sponsoring the 9th Annual - "The Carbon Ranch: Using Food & Stewardship to Build Soil and Fight Climate Change"

The Quivira Coalition's Mission Statement: “to build resilience by fostering ecological, economic and social health on western landscapes through education, innovation, collaboration, and progressive public and private land stewardship.”

There is an exciting line-up of speakers:
  • Dr. David Montgomery, geologist and author of Dirt!: The Erosion of Civilizations
  • Jeff Moyer, Farm Director for the Rodale Institute, on Organic No-Till
  • Dr. Bill Chameides, Dean of the Nichols School of the Environment, Duke University
  • Nancy Ranney, Rancher, Ranney Grassfed Beef.
Over the past 20 years or so, many groups are coming together to promote strategies of sustainibility. There are so many areas where there are opportunities to "think outside the grid" and the Quivira group has brought together a solution to what our world is dying for .
A carbon ranch bundles them into an economic whole with the aim of creating climate-friendly landscapes that are both healthy ecologically and the source of healthy food.
