What Your Food Ate: How to Heal Our Land & Reclaim Our Health with David R. Montgomery & Anne Biklé (Virtual)
Thursday, June 23, 2022
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Are you really what you eat? David R. Montgomery and Anne Biklé will take us far beyond the well-worn adage to deliver a new truth: the roots of good health start on farms. Their new book "What Your Food Ate" marshals evidence from recent and forgotten science to illustrate how the health of the soil ripples through to that of crops, livestock, and ultimately us.
David R. Montgomery studied geology at Stanford University before earning his Ph.D. in geomorphology at UC Berkeley. He teaches at the University of Washington where he studies the evolution of topography and how geological processes shape landscapes and influence ecological systems. He loved maps as a kid and now writes about the relationship of people to their environment and other things that interest him. In 2008 he was named a MacArthur Fellow. He lives with his wife Anne in Seattle, Washington.
Anne Biklé is an author and public speaker. Her writing explores humanity’s tangled relationship with nature through the lens of agriculture, medicine, and microbiomes. She finds the botanical world particularly enthralling and has coaxed many a plant into rambunctious growth or nursed them back from the edge of death with her regenerative gardening practices.
