December 17, 2019

Chris Walters and Gayle Kemp of the Progressive Alliance of Henderson County organized a rally the evening before the impeachment vote was to be held in the House of Representatives.  About 125 people braved the bitter cold to carry signs and wave at people driving by.  Several in attendance commented on the strong positive responses to our rallies versus three years ago which often had more negative responses.  Keep persisting.

December 11

Kelly Hollinger, manager of Foolish Dog Farm and co-founder of the Soul and Soil Project, presented on regenerative agriculture. 

Kelly indicated that current agricultural practices are a main contributor to climate change. She shared the history of agriculture and livestock management in our country and outlined how we have gone from small family farms to huge corporate farming organizations that deplete the soil of nutrients, organic material, microbes and the ability to sequester carbon.
