Climate change has been affecting our farms for several decades now. The
science and data show that there will continue to be dramatic impacts on
every farmers’ ability to grow and distribute food. Agriculture is one of
our greatest tools for reducing and even potentially reversing the effects
of modern industrial society on our global climate, but it also one of the
greatest contributors to climate change. Something has to give. Come learn
about how we can work together as a community to ensure local stability in
local food production and security!

Farming for Justice is a new monthly meeting for farmers, food producers,
and land workers interested in digging into the intersection of food,
agriculture and social justice. What role do we see ourselves playing in
racial/economic justice work? What are the barriers we face and how can we
support each other to step further into action? Through dialogue, education
and action planning, we'll begin to explore the answers.
