As we learn about the significance of soil life we are finding out that disturbing the soil is no longer recommended but how do we learn to transition away from tillage? Cat Buxton will demonstrate some techniques garden-side at the Billings Community Garden and share the exciting science-story behind no-till to help broaden our understanding of how we can create conditions for thriving ecosystems. We’ll discuss how to employ the soil health principles in context to help you make the transition toward less soil disturbance with confidence.

PLEASE NOTE: attendance is limited. If you sign up and are unable to attend, please notify the organizer as soon as possible at programs@sustainablewoodstock.org or 802-291-1003

Free film screening: Youth V Gov

July 12th-26th

Location: virtual

Reserve your Free spot here

The film YOUTH v GOV follows the story of America’s youth taking on the world’s most powerful government, filing a ground-breaking lawsuit against the U.S. government. They assert it has willfuly acted over six decades to create the climate crisis, thus endangering their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property.

The Juliana plaintiffs, represented by the legal non-profit Our Children’s Trust, represent the diversity of America’s youth impacted by the climate crisis. Hailing from across the country, they encompass cultural, economic racial, and geographic diversity, with many from marginalized communities, and their stories are universal. Their diversity speaks not only to the impacts of climate change, but to the inclusion required if we are to build a better, more just future together. If these young people are successful, they will not only make history, they will change the future.

Free and open to all. Donations are welcome and go to support our local arts community. Make donations at https://pentanglearts.org/get-involved/donations/

Hosted by Sustainable Woodstock and Pentangle Arts. Made possible by our underwriters VERMONT COMMUNITY FOUNDATION and MASCOMA BANK and sponsors Ellaway Group, The Unicorn, Yankee Bookshop, and Mark Knott DDS.
