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, Wally Czajkowski (Hadley, MA), and Bryan O’Hara (Lebanon, CT) for a farmer roundtable discussion of strategies and ideas for building resilience on our farmlands. Wally and Bryan will kick off the discussion by sharing some of their observations from their many decades of farming experience, and a few practices they’ve tried in order to improve outcomes on their farms. This event is geared toward mechanized vegetable farms of medium to large scale; both conventional and organic strategies will be discussed.
This is a 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 here to ensure there are enough chairs and refreshments for all!
