Last Friday, restoration ecologist Allan Savory gave a talk called “Reversing Global Warming while Meeting Human Needs: An Urgently Needed Land-Based Option” at the Fletcher School.  The event was hosted by the Agriculture, Forests, and Biodiversity Program of the Center for International Environment and Resource Policy at the Fletcher School; the Agriculture, Food, and Environment Program of Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy; and Planet-Tech Associates.  The talk and the question and answer session that followed highlighted Holistic Management, a decision making framework which helps teach people how to strategically manage livestock to help heal land that has undergone desertification.

Our very own Tufts Recycles interns attended the event, and intern Diego assisted with composting and recycling at the reception that followed.  It was a very successful Zero Waste Initiative.  Thank you to everyone who came and helped us compost!
