A Message from the Director, March 2019

March 15, 2019

We are grateful for all the hard work from the Ag & Food Committee, M&C Café, the SEMAP board, our volunteers, and especially our presenters for a successful 12th Annual Ag & Food conference.  Thank you!  Nowhere else on the Southcoast can you find that much food and farming knowledge in one location.  The keynote by Dr. Michael Hoffman of the Cornell Institute for Climate Smart Solutions got the day off to a serious start talking about the effect of climate change on our food system by breaking down a typical meal and discussing how each food item would be affected by climate change.  It was a sobering look at what the future holds for agriculture.
