President and Founder, Florence Reed, is a featured speaker at TEDxDirogo this year.

Climate change and loss of biodiversity threaten the very existence of the human race. While professors and policymakers in ivory towers study, debate, and try to forge agreements, campesinos with little money or education are stabilizing the climate, bringing biodiversity back to degraded lands, and feeding the world. Meet some of these unsung heroes and learn how millions more could join their ranks to become the cornerstone of environmental, economic and social sustainability.
