With a new year comes a new season of River Talks!
We are excited to kick off this season with a special evening event featuring John Cain Carter, Founder of Aliança da Terra. John has been featured in the The New York Times, The Economist, and appeared on David Letterman’s The Late Show for his groundbreaking efforts to change the market ecosystem in Brazil and prevent the destruction of the Amazon Basin.
This season also features the stories of two different reenactments of John Donelson's historic 1779 journey that led to the founding of Fort Nashborough and eventually our city. We will wrap up the season with an eye toward growing season with Jenny Adkins from the US Department of Agriculture discussing soil health and the innovative farming techniques embraced by Tennessee’s farmers.
We look forward to seeing you at our first talk on February 9!
