No More Normal: A Climate Adaptation Farmer Roundtable
February 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Let’s face it– there is no more ‘normal’ growing season anymore. The first and last frosts are erratic, and precipitation is all over the place– heavy rains one summer and droughts the next.
Join American Farmland Trust’s New England Climate and Agriculture team and Jim Ward of Ward’s Berry Farm on February 13th from 2-4 for a farmer roundtable discussion of strategies and ideas for building resilience on our farmlands. Jim will kick off the event by sharing some of his observations and approaches to farming in increasingly variable weather conditions, and the role that soil health plays in managing for crop resilience
This event is geared toward mechanized vegetable farms of medium to large scale; both conventional and organic strategies will be discussed. This is a free, farmer-focused, peer-to-peer event. AFT Staff will provide refreshments, logistics, and detailed note taking so you can have access to notes from the conversation after the event.
Please RSVP to ensure there are enough chairs and refreshments for all!
