Climate Change And Farmland: Building A Resilient Future For Washington
April 24, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$5.00
Some statistics suggest that a quarter of global greenhouse emissions come from agriculture. But what does climate change mean for farmers here in Washington? To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, PCC Farmland Trust presents national bestselling authors and mother-daughter duo Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé, who bring a multi-generational perspective on the environment, the climate crisis, and our food system. Frances and Anna are joined by a panel of local farmers who offer insight on building a sustainable and resilient food system and share real stories about climate change impacts on farmland, and the ways they are working to mitigate and adapt. The conversation will be moderated by KNKX Environment Reporter Bellamy Pailthorp. Honor the power of soil and the knowledge of farmers as one answer to Washington’s low-carbon, resilient future.
