Last week's actions
Last week at our meeting our speaker was David Munson Jr. David spoke about the Climate Crisis and ways we can impact the issue through small actions. David  has had a wide variety of business and personal activities that give him an unique perspective on the world.  His decades of agriculture ending with a successful grass fed beef operation gives him insights on the potential of the land to sequester carbon.
