Down and Dirty and the Soul of Soil
with David R. Montgomery and Evan Thaler-Null
September 29, 2017
Dirt has gotten a bad rap. People talk about “dirty words”; “soiling oneself” is pejorative. But dirt and soil are the skin of our world and the very makeup of our own bodies.
Join us for an afternoon of down-and-dirty dialogue between Professor David Montgomery and Abode Farmer Evan Thaler-Null as well as local farmers. Hear the implications of dirt in theory and in practice. Delve beneath your own feet for a theor-pragmatic approach to earth, soil, and the socio-cultural implications of dirt.
The schedule of events are:
2:30-3:45pm Presentation by David Montgomery
3:45-4pm Snack Break and Book Signing
4-5:15pm Dialogue and Panel with Q&A
5:15-6pm – Tour of Abode Farm
6-7pm – Farm-to-table Dinner and Book Signing
David Montgomery will also have his books available for purchase and for signing.
