Zoom Event: On Creating Regenerative Just Food Systems to Fight Climate Change and Help Heal the Earth

Join Us for a Conversation

Hunger in U.S. households almost tripled between 2019 and August 2020, with 14 times as many children going hungry, even though there should be plenty of food to feed everyone a nutritious diet. Clearly our corporate-controlled food system is unhealthy, unjust, and unsustainable.
Join us for a conversation with Vermont-based author, educator, and organic farming activist Grace Gershuny on transforming the U.S. food system into one that is regenerative, just, and accessible to all.
Gershuny’s book Organic Revolutionary: A Memoir of the Movement for Real Food, Planetary Healing, and Human Liberation is in its third printing. Her prior books are Start with the Soil, The Rodale Book of Composting, and The Soul of Soil.
Gershuny’s insider knowledge of official food policies and systems — she helped to craft the National Organic Program regulations of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and developed an early certification program for the Northeast Organic Farming Association — as well as of organic farming, from her decades of food growing and organizing, give her a unique perspective.
Organic Revolutionary, writes reviewer Sarah Galbraith, is “chock-full of lessons applicable to today's food system activists . . . with many parallels to other social and environmental movements such as Black Lives Matter, gay marriage, global climate change, safe drinking water, banning plastics.”
Gershuny serves on the Institute for Social Ecology and Vermont Healthy Soils Coalition boards of directors. She teaches and develops curricula for ISE, works as an independent organic inspector and consultant, and has taught at Green Mountain, Prescott, Burlington, Goddard, and Sterling Colleges. Her master’s degree in extension education/ecological agriculture is from the University of Vermont.

Register now for Zoom. We will also livestream this event on our Facebook page and later post a recording on our YouTube channel.
