Panel Discussion: Rethinking Farming Amidst Climate Change

February 26 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Reinventing Farming is an oral history program about how small farmers in our region are finding niches amidst climate change, industrial farms, and large supply chains. Visitors are invited to engage with issue-based videos, an exhibit of changing farming implements, including photos of local farms over time, and moderated panels with local farmers and agriculture teachers. The videos and exhibits are integrated within a larger historical exhibition, ‘Sharon Stories in the World and at Home,’ connecting historical and contemporary farming issues. This first of four-panel discussions feature Matt Freund of Freund Farm, Gordon Ridgway of Ridgway Farm, and Sarah Paley of Paley Farm and Farm Store.
