    Soil not Oil is an informative and often inspiring conference on why healthy farms are so important to limiting global warming. They point out that if farms on our planet increase their organic matter by only 2%, it would end global warming entirely. Here is the info:

    Starhawk,

    The conference is very expensive. If we can’t afford it, maybe they have volunteer opportunities that would allow us to see half the presentations each day. * I can’t find anything about this online but I have done it before. Another option would be to look up Vandana Shiva’s videos online and get inspired by the person who often keynotes this conference.
