The Drawdown Kitchen with Matt Stinchcomb
Presented by Matt Stinchcomb on 5/23/2019.
The choices we make in the kitchen, from what we eat to what we do with the waste we leave behind, have broad implications on the climate and ecology of the Earth. Using Paul Hawken’s inspired book, Drawdown, as a guide, participants will explore the climatic impacts of agriculture and learn how our dietary selections can reverse global warming, support our local farming community, and cultivate a healthy body.
