“The solution to climate change & the solution to poverty are the same.” Vandana Shiva
Join us on Thursday July 21st when local groups will come together in Ojai to support both the Soil Not Oil international campaign & the upcoming second annual Soil Not Oil conference happening in August with an evening gathering of film & discussion. Local Ojai filmmaker Camilla Becket will be in attendance sharing excerpts from her film The Seeds of Vandana Shiva, with other short films on soils & carbon farming also included.
In 2015 the first Soil Not Oil conference was held in Northern California with the intent of supporting the Soil Not Oil international campaign launched by scientist, activist and author, Dr. Vandana Shiva. Dr. Shiva was one of the first to make the connection between climate change and the disastrous soil practices of industrial agriculture. She is the founder of Navdanya and a founding member of Regeneration International.
Because our lives are entirely dependent on the health of our soils, the Soil Not Oil Campaign demands the care and regeneration of soils worldwide. We emphasize that extensive restructuring of land management practices, especially agriculture, is key to combating climate change, restoring water cycles, stopping ocean acidification, re-establishing biodiversity, improving food production, and revitalizing local economies across the planet.
