Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life
by David Montgomery
Join our May book discussion to celebrate International Compost Week: May 2nd through May 8th! The book is Growing a Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life by David Montgomery.
Montgomery travels the world, meeting farmers at the forefront of an agricultural movement to restore soil health. From Kansas to Ghana, he sees why adopting the three tenets of conservation agriculture―ditching the plow, planting cover crops, composting and growing a diversity of crops―is the solution. When farmers restore fertility to the land, this helps feed the world, cool the planet, reduce pollution, and return profitability to family farms.
The book discussion will happen at the Atkins Field Pavilion rain or shine.
If you would like to attend the discussion, call the library to get a copy of the book at 472-5948 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

On Race and Racism
2020 has given us a global pandemic and a global uprising of anti-racism around the world and especially in the United States. Under normal circumstances, the library would be the place you could turn to for community gatherings and conversations but our doors remain closed, for now, while we figure out how to safely re-open. The Jeudevine Memorial Library strives to be a place where all people feel welcome no matter the color of your skin, religious affiliation, income level, sexual orientation, gender, or your political persuasion. The library is a place to learn about history, current events, dreams of what the future might be, and to build awareness and knowledge.
Some of us are already actively working toward racial justice, others have just begun. Some have not yet started. No matter where you are at right now or what your age or reading level is, we have books ranging from exploring the history of race in America to books on anti-racism as well as exploring these issues, and the lives of Black people around the world, through fiction. Contact the library for help finding the books you would like to read.
We would be happy to try to interlibrary loan any titles that we don't have in our collection. Ask us!
