Our Ocean and Climate Change

Dr. Heller will talk about a biogeochemical cycle, driven by ocean bacteria, that sustains life on Earth by keeping the atmosphere in balance. The most important piece of this cycle is nitrogen fixation - the same process that makes soil rich. You'll learn how tiny molecules in tiny creatures (DNA in bacteria) influence and respond to planet-size processes like atmospheric balance and climate change. 

Philip Heller is a native San Franciscan and a lifetime resident of the Bay Area. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from U.C. Berkeley in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He worked for many years as a software engineer in Silicon Valley, eventually becoming a consultant, author, and public speaker. He is the author of 4 books on the Java programming language.

Phil’s midlife crisis was the realization that whether you write software or prose, it matters what you write about. At the age of 50-something he enrolled at San Jose State University and got his Master’s Degree 2 years later, in Computer Science with a Bioinformatics emphasis. He moved on to get his PhD in Bioinformatics from U.C. Santa Cruz, graduating in 2014. His did his research in Jon Zehr’s Microbial Oceanography lab, studying nitrogen fixation. His postdoctoral work for the Smithsonian Institution took him to the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, where he used Bioinformatics to study species invasion in Monterey Bay. In 2016 he was appointed Assistant Professor at San Jose State University, where he teaches programming and Bioinformatics, and continues his research into marine organisms that give life to all beings on the planet.

Explore the many benefits of healthy soil in this exciting talk. Healthy soil not only conserves water and protects our water systems but it stores carbon leading to increased soil microbial communities, healthy and abundant food systems, and a more resilient climate. According to soil experts, restoring soil health through regenerative farming practices (i.e., no-till, cover crops, compost) and regenerative ranching practices (i.e., holistic grazing) has the potential to return carbon to the soil and lower atmospheric CO2 levels within decades. Presented by Anne Stauffer of the Sierra Club.

Anne Stauffer grew up in city of Bakersfield, surrounded by farmland, cotton fields, warm desert air, and the Kit fox. Like many of us, she has witnessed the loss of open space—buildings and homes have replaced many of the open fields and the beloved Kit fox is an endangered species. After moving to the Bay Area, she became an environmental activist and currently serves as co-organizer of the Soils Committee within the Loma Prieta Chapter of Sierra Club. Anne believes that an increased awareness of our natural world will lead to protection of these vital ecosystems, including the abundant life within soil, and ultimately to reduced CO2 levels in Earth’s atmosphere and a stabilized climate.

Soil is alive! Come to learn and see the difference between dirt and soil. Soil compaction and over watering are two of the most common challenges for a successful garden.  Learn about the very important jobs soil microbes perform and how they partner with plants. Learn simple ways to invite them into your garden at home and at work and why you want them to take the lead in caring for your plants. Presented by Theresa Lyngso.

Theresa grew up in Belmont when it was full of oak trees and small creeks and spent much of her childhood outside exploring nature.  In 2002 she became a Master Composter and in 2009 she became a Master Gardener.  She gardens in Loma Mar with her husband Joe, they grow mainly natives, apples and pears and some vegetables using as little water as possible.  She is President and CFO of Lyngso Garden Materials.
