The Williams Lake Professional Development (PD) Committee is planning a virtual Lunch & Learn event on Wednesday, November 25th from 12:00-1:00 pm PDT.  There is no cost for this event. The intention is to provide professional development and networking opportunities to the members of all five professional organizations (Engineers, Agrologists, Biologists, Foresters and Technologists) in Williams Lake, BC, area. Please share this PD opportunity.

Defending Beef, the Case for Sustainable Meat Production: The Manifesto of an environmental lawyer and vegetarian turned cattle rancher by Nicolette Hahn Niman.  The author dispels popular myths about how eating beef is bad for our bodies and the planet.  Grounded in empirical scientific data and with living  examples from around the world, Hahn Niman builds a comprehensive argument that cattle can help build carbon-sequestering soils to mitigate climate change, enhance biodiversity, prevent desertification, and provide invaluable nutrition.  While no single book can definitively answer the thorny question of how to feed the Earth’s growing population, Defending Beef makes the case that, whatever the world’s future food system looks like, cattle and beef can and must be part of the solution.

Presented by: Nicole Pressey.
