Food Gardening and Farming During Climate Change in Southeast Texas

In November 2017, I presented two talks about the challenges of growing food in the increasingly wetter and hotter climate of Southeast Texas.  The first was to the Montgomery County Master Gardeners at Texas Agri-Life in Conroe, TX.  It dealt with practical steps you can take to adjust your plant lists and planting schedule to the reality of temperatures this year where you live.

The second was for the Houston chapter of, the Pantsuit Republic, and Rice University Student Climate Club, and dealt with the alarming problems raised by ever increasing temperatures and their effect on anyone’s ability across the planet to grow food plants.  It also dealt with seeming lack of awareness in the climate activists’ networks, agricultural universities,and possible solutions.

This second talk at Rice University  is now a pdf  can be downloaded at the link below.
