David Montgomery



Restore the Soil and Feed Tomorrow

We’ve lost a third of the world’s fertile soil and are slated to lose another third in the next century–this is an optimistic story about the environment. Geologist David Montgomery shares his life’s research and insights into soil, from its role in the foundation of our civilizations down to the microbes that live in it and how regenerative agriculture can save the food world of tomorrow.

This talk is part of the MAD Monday event on cities, soil, and the true value of food in Copenhagen on October 31, 2019. Typically convening on Mondays, the traditional day of rest for restaurants, MAD Monday is a conversation series that tackles the issues that matter most in food, inviting anyone interested in food and hospitality to gather, expand their thinking, and discuss issues of relevance.
