Roots of Resilience: Soil Communities, Participatory Science, and Environmental Justice
Date: Monday, May 23, 2022

What can the communities of soil under our feet teach us about resiliency? Join colleagues, neighbors, and local practitioners for a hybrid in-person and virtual evening event by the Lawrence Public Library and The Land Institute of learning, sharing, and connecting over the resilient practices all around us. The evening will feature a streamed keynote presentation by Mónica Ramírez-Andreotta, creator of Gardenroots, a welcome and presentation by The Land Institute Civic Science program, and lightning talks from local organizations. For the in-person event, food made with Kernza® (a perennial grain developed by The Land Institute) and drinks will be shared.
Attendance is limited, registration required.

This event is part of the 2022 C*Science Conference hosted by the Citizen Science Association. The conference connects participants with a global network of colleagues from across disciplines, roles, and career stages for a week of inspiring conversations and action-oriented sessions at the virtual portion of this event. The core virtual program will take place in a single online space over four half-days from May 23-26, 2022.
