Saturday, Nov. 18 - Speakers Series: Implementing the Maryland Healthy Soils Program
1:30 - 3:30 p.m., Annapolis Friends Meeting House, 351 Dubois Road, Annapolis
The Healthy Soil Act, enacted by the Maryland Legislature last Spring, is a landmark bill which, if properly implemented in Maryland, will not only result in the production of healthier and more abundant food, but also fix more carbon in the soil and counter the impact of global warming. Our program will feature speakers who were involved in the development of the Healthy Soil Act and now involved in its implementation. We will also examine how we can expand its implementation and the potential for reversing global warming if practiced worldwide. Speakers:
* Micheal Locklear - Independent researcher and consultant with 30 years experience in organic farming and soil; Native American; environmentalist; peace, health, and human rights activist
* Lori Arguelles – President and CEO of the Alice Ferguson Foundation
* Susan Payne – Ecosystem Markets and Agricultural Certainty Programs Coordinator – Maryland Department of Agriculture
