February 13, 2:00 – 4:00pm
Ward’s Berry Farm 614 Main St. Sharon, MA 02067
Join American Farmland Trust’s New England Climate and Agriculture team and Jim Ward of Ward’s Berry Farm for a farmer roundtable discussion of strategies and ideas for building resilience on our farmlands. Jim Ward will kick off the conversations with 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 the notes from the conversation after the event.
