Ever wonder how the Earth is so self-sustaining?  Rebecca Reider explains  why complexity plays such a vital role in maintaining sustainability.  It’s all a matter of balance.  Learn how each species, from plankton to polar bears, from savanna grasses to Amazon jungles, from mice to the big cats, keeps the food chain intact.  Learn how the elements in the atmosphere help maintain a balance, too.

Rebecca Reider earned her BA from Harvard and her Masters in Environmental Science from Yale.  She is an agricultural and ecological project leader, educator and writer. She’s editor of Harvests Magazine, and a regular contributor to many farming and environmental magazines. She co-edited the book Agroecology and the Struggle for Food Sovereignty in the Americans.  

In 2006, Ms. Reider received a Fulbright US Graduate Award to research organic agriculture at Lincoln University in New Zealand.  Since then she has been coordinating education and research projects for organic producer groups in New Zealand.  She is also the author of Dreaming the Biosphere.

Join Rebecca Reider, Melissa and me on Monday, November 11, 2013 for a discussion on self-sustaining environments.
