excerpts from The Seeds of Vandana Shiva documentary film
Thursday July 21, 7:30 pm , local groups in Ojai, CA are gathering to support both the Soil Not Oil international campaign & the upcoming second annual Soil Not Oil Conference in August of this year with an evening gathering of film & discussion in Ojai, CA. Local filmmaker Camilla Becket will be in attendance sharing excerpts from her soon to be released film The Seeds of Vandana, with other short films on soils & carbon farming also a part of the evening.
In 2015 the first Soil Not Oil conference was held in Northern California with the intent of supporting the Soil Not Oil international campaign launched by brilliant Indian scientist, eco-activist, & author Vandana Shiva. Vanda Shiva is a founding member of both Regenerative International and the Navadany Foundation, who were among the first to connect the dots between climate change and the disastrous soil practices of industrial agriculture.
Restoring global soil quality is one of the best things we can do for climate change. Because our lives are entirely dependent on the health of our soils, the Soil Not Oil Campaign demands the care and regeneration of soils worldwide. Emphasizing extensive restructuring of land management practices, especially agriculture, is key to combating climate change with biologically healthy soils capable of sequestering carbon from the atmosphere, while also restoring water cycles, stopping ocean acidification, re-establishing biodiversity, improving food production, and revitalizing local economies across the planet.
The film & discussion event takes place on Thursday July 21, 2016, 7:30- 9pm, at the Farmer & the Cook Restaurant, 339 W El Roblar Dr, Ojai (Meiners Oak) CA 93023. No reservations required.
