“The Food-Climate Connection” is the third session in an Interfaith Climate Justice “Inquiry to Action” series, designed to empower individuals and congregations with knowledge, skills and connections to address climate chance with hope and thoughtful action. At this session we will hear from three local speakers: Dr. Gary Fick and Megan Gregory will trace greenhouse gas emissions related to food, and identify practical action steps for building more just and sustainable agricultural and food systems. Karryn Ramanujan will share her expertise in permaculture and sustainability education as they relate to mitigating and adapting to climate change.
