Ronnie Cummins will read from and talk about Grassroots Rising: A Call to Action on Climate, Farming, Food, and a Green New Deal. This book offers a blueprint for building and supercharging a grassroots Regeneration Movement based on consumer activism, farmer innovation, political change, and regenerative finance. Using regenerative agriculture practices that restore our agricultural and grazing lands, we can sequester massive amounts of carbon in the soil. Coupled with an aggressive transition toward renewables, he argues that we have the power to not only mitigate and slow down climate change, but actually reverse global warming.

Ronnie Cummins is founder and director of the Organic Consumers Association (OCA), and also serves on the steering committee of Regeneration International and OCA's Mexican affiliate, Vía Orgánica.

"Regenerative agriculture is going to be a key phrase in the decades ahead--and this book will get you in on the ground floor, so to speak. Not much could be more important!"--Bill McKibben
