Didi Pershouse

Soil Carbon Coalition
Author, teacher
Didi Pershouse is the author of The Ecology of Care: Medicine, Agriculture, Money, and the Quiet Power of Human and Microbial Communities as well as Understanding Soil Health and Watershed Function: A Teacher's Manual. As the founder of the Center for Sustainable Medicine, she developed a practice and theoretical framework for systems-based ecological medicine—restoring health to people as well as the environmental and social systems around them.

After 22 years of clinical work with patients, Pershouse now travels widely: writing, teaching, and developing learning resources with the Soil Carbon Coalition, the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub and other organizations. Her workshops and activities engage farmers, schools, and watershed groups in opportunities to improve soil health, public health, and climate resiliency through changes in land management. She does consulting, and facilitates retreats and peer-support groups, for leaders in social and environmental change. You can learn more about her work at www.didipershouse.com
