PUT CARBON IN THE GROUND: EVENTS

Reshaping our Food System Toward Climate Justice & Food Justice

Wednesday July 29, 6 – 8 pm. Registration here.

Join 350Vermont and Migrant Justice / Justicia Migrante for a discussion and presentation about the intersection of food justice, climate justice and migrant justice. We’ll begin with historical background on entangled systems of social and ecological oppression, then discuss practices and alternatives for a more just food system, both in Vermont and around the world. Bring your questions, concerns, experiences and enthusiasm!

Farming with Climate Change: A Panel Discussion

Tuesday August 11, 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Registration here.

Join 350VT and four Vermont farmers for a panel discussion connecting the dots between agriculture, climate and resilience in Vermont. Farmers will share their own experiences with climate change and the practices they use to build resilience on their farm and in their community, then take questions on food justice, state policy and how Vermonters can better support local, regenerative agriculture. The last forty minutes will be devoted to breakout sessions, with topics including land access, perennial polycultures, and holistic (grazing) management. Your questions, curiosity and experiences are welcome—come ready to share!

Cedar Mountain Farm: Farm Tour and Policy Discussion

Tuesday September 8, 6:30 –  7:45  pm. Registration here.

Join Stephen Leslie of Cedar Mountain Farm in Hartland for a (digital) farm tour and discussion of agricultural policy and change-making in Vermont. We’ll learn about Cedar Mountain’s draft horses, market garden, jersey cows and the regenerative practices that tie them all together. The discussion will then open up to Soil Health Bills, Payment for Ecosystem Services and other policies currently under consideration by the Vermont Legislature. Join your fellow farmers, activists and citizens to strategize at the intersection of regenerative agricultural policy and practice!

Our regenerative agriculture series is free and open to all, but it takes time and resources to put together. If you are able, consider donating support our work and ensure that we can continue to offer free, accessible events like these in the future.
