The Food for Thought Book Club at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library will discuss “Cows Save the Planet: And Other Improbable Ways of Restoring Soil to Heal the Earth” by Judith D. Schwartz when in meets May 6 at 6 p.m. in the Gozzer Room.
In the book Schwartz looks at soil as a crucible for our many overlapping environmental, economic, and social crises. She reveals that for many of these problems—climate change, desertification, biodiversity loss, droughts, floods, wildfires, rural poverty, malnutrition, and obesity—there are positive, alternative scenarios to the degradation and devastation we face.
Copies of the book can be reserved at the library.
The Book Club, in partnership with the Inland Northwest Food Network, meets on the first Wednesday of each month and is open to anyone interested in food and all things food related.
For the June discussion the group is reading “Organic” by Peter Laufer.
