  • Healing a Broken Agricultural System

    • Wednesday, December 01, 2021 at 07:00 PM

    • Webinar at 7:00 p.m. CT, Wednesday, December 1, 2021

    Herbicides and pesticides are now used throughout corporate farming. Toxic global agriculture has horrible health and environmental effects. It is necessary to transform this failed system of food production into one that is regenerative, sustainable and non-exploitative. Climate is an essential component of relationships between plants, animals and the rest of the living world. With India’s ecologies in tatters, it is urgent to work on species’ restoration and rehabilitation. Urban farming in the St. Louis area shows the possibility of decolonizing agriculture while challenging white privilege.
