Bring it Home Project - Bothwell Speaks

Cecil Bothwell

Asheville City Council member Cecil Bothwell attended the "Bring it Home" Project ribbon cutting ceremony on July 20th and had some very important things to say. He says, "Ashevillage is modeling our urban future. Local food security will become more and more vital as the world gets hotter and more crowded. Best estimates suggest that world grain production will fall by about 10 percent for each degree C increase in average temperatures. We will add about 3 billion people by mid-century and at least one degree of heat. Best estimates are for a 4 degree increase by 2100. You don't have to read between the lines to see the problem we face. Permaculture is one way to address the crisis in our backyards, and Ashevillage is showing Asheville the way."

Thank you Mr. Bothwell for your support of this project and your continued support of sustainability in our community.
