Join David Montgomery and Anne Bikle as they explore the connections between soil and human health.

Anne Biklé is an author, biologist, and gardener.   She uses her broad background and endless fascination with the natural world to investigate and write about connections between  health issues,  plants, and the environment. Her interests have also led her into public health, salmon restoration, and environmental planning. 

David Montgomery earned his Ph.D. in geomorphology and teaches at the University of Washington where he studies the evolution of topography and how geological processes shape landscapes and influence ecological systems. Montgomery writes about the relationship of people to their environment and is the author of Growing A Revolution: Bringing Our Soil Back to Life. In 2008 he was named a MacArthur Fellow. 

This Art As A Voice event accompanies the Food For Thought exhibition at the San Juan Islands Museum of Art September 27-December 9.
