The Educated Eater: Regional Farming in a Changing Climate

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Wollman Hall, Eugene Lang College, Wollman Hall 65 West 11th Street Room B500, New York, NY 10003

You can’t predict the weather, but the weather predicts how a season’s crop will fare. What does a changing climate mean for small-scale, regional growers and our food supply? In recent years, storms have flooded acres of crops, and rising temperatures have caused fruit trees to blossom early, impacting the fall harvest. Will a permanent shift in weather allow farmers to extend their growing season?

This panel of Greenmarket farmers and climate change experts will explore how this unpredictable element is shaping the food available in the local marketplace, and the ways that regional farmers are learning to adjust their practices to accommodate it.

Panelists include:

 - Beatriz Beckford, New School Faculty
 - Sonali McDermid, NYU Faculty,
 - Keith Stewart, Keith's Farm.

This panel will be moderated by Challey Comer, GrowNYC/FARMroots. 

Free, but reservations are required.
