Tapping into the Wisdom of Traditional Farmers: Sustainably Growing Food in the Face of Climate Uncertainty
Speaker: Gary Paul Nabhan
MUB Theater I, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH
Thursday, January 30, 2014
4 – 6 pm
With climatic uncertainty now “the new normal,” many farmers, gardeners, and orchardists in North America are desperately seeking ways to adapt how they grow food in the face of climate change. The solutions may be at our back door. In Growing Food in a Hotter, Drier Land, author Gary Paul Nabhan, one of the world’s experts on the agricultural traditions of arid lands, draws from the knowledge of traditional farmers in the Gobi Desert, the Arabian Peninsula, the Sahara Desert, and Andalusia, as well as the Sonoran, Chihuahuan, and Painted deserts of North America. Sponsored by The Sustainability Institute, the Dual Major in EcoGastronomy, and the Center for the Humanities.
