Special Speaker

Please join us on Wednesday, January 15 for our regular meeting as learn more about the work of The Land Institute!

The Land Institute, located in Salina, Kansas, believes that a solution for the 10,000 year old problem of agriculture — soil loss and degradation, ecosystem destruction, and high energy use — is not only necessary, but possible. Their goal is to fashion an agriculture as sustainable as the native ecosystems it displaced, to find a way of growing crops that rewards the farmer and the landscape more than the manufacturers of external inputs. They envision an agriculture that not only protects irreplaceable soil, but lessens our dependence on fossil fuels and damaging synthetic chemicals.


Josh Svaty serves as the Vice President of The Land Institute.  He is a fifth generation farmer from Ellsworth County, Kansas. He served 7 years in the Kansas Legislature before being appointed Kansas Secretary of Agriculture in 2009. He was then Senior Adviser to the Regional Administrator in EPA Region 7. He and his wife Kimberly have two boys and are expecting another child in March.

See you January 15 at 7pm at the 1st Unitarian Society of Denver, located at 1400 Lafayette, Denver.

Food Security Kick-off on Sept. 18th

Written by

Please join us on Wednesday, September 18 as we celebrate the start of our 2-year focus on Food Security!

That’s right- you voted, and the majority of our membership voted for the RPCVs of Colorado to spend the next two years learning more about Food Security, both locally and internationally. We will spend the first part of the meeting getting a basic overview of what “Food Security” means globally, and then will break out into small groups, led by local Food Security leaders, and work to develop how we will focus our energies over the next two year. Join the conversation!
