WILLIAMSTOWN -- As part of Food Week at Williams College, journalist Judith Schwartz will discuss her book, "Cows Save the Planet," at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 22, in Griffin Hall, room 3. This event is free and open to the public.
In "Cows Save the Planet," Schwartz looks at soil as a crucible for our many overlapping environmental, economic and social crises. She contends hat for many of these problems - climate change, desertification, biodiversity loss, droughts, floods, wildfires, rural poverty, malnutrition and obesity - our ability to turn these crises into opportunities depends on how we treat the soil.
Schwartz is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, as well as the Society of Environmental Journalists, and she is a member of the board of the One World Conservation Center in Bennington, Vt. Schwartz holds a B.A. from Brown University, an M.S.J. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and an M.A. in counseling psychology from Northwestern University.
