Local Farming in the Climate Crisis: Panel and Action Plan

Come to the panel at 12 pm to learn about what is happening. Stay for the action session at 1:45 pm to be part of planning support for local farms for the future. The panel brings together two local farmers, David Fisher of Natural Roots Farm in Conway and Sarah Voiland of Red Fire Farm in Montague and Granby; also with Natalie Blais, State Representative for 1 st Franklin District. They will discuss the challenges of farming in the climate crisis, the Massachusetts' government response, and visions for the future When: Sunday, September 17, 2023 Where: The Episcopal Church of Saints James and Andrew 8 Church Street, Greenfield, MA (Please enter front doors of the Church on Federal Street). Time: 12 noon to 1:30 pm Panel and Q&A, 1:45 pm - 2:30 pm Action Plan Snacks will be available.
