David Montgomery – You Don’t Know Dirt: A lecture on the importance of our agricultural systems in supporting a sustainable civilization

12:15 – 2:00 pm, Thursday, Feb 3rd, Victoria Learning Centre, Irving K Barber Learning Centre, UBC

Author David Montgomery has discovered that the three-foot-deep skin of our planet is slowly being eroded away, with potentially devastating results. In this engaging lecture Montgomery will draw from his book ‘Dirt: The Erosion of Civilizations’ to trace the role of soil use and abuse in the history of societies, and discuss how the rise of organic and no-till farming bring hope for a new agricultural revolution.
