Creating and Cultivating Connections in Sustainable Agriculture
Sustainability means many things. On one end of the spectrum, it can mean buying "green" products,
organic food, and trying to reduce our carbon footprint by using fewer non-renewable resources. On the other end of the spectrum, sustainability means supporting
a local food economy, or even growing your own food.
Stuart Soboleski, a deaf farm manager at Sterling College, an environmentally focused
liberal arts college in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, will share his experiences of the past 7 years visiting
and working on farms in Switzerland and northeastern United States. In addition to that,
he will discuss concepts, resources, terminology, and the culture behind the red-hot sustainable farming movement.
There will be information on how get involved with, or support the creation of,
a local food economy, may it be a small backyard vegetable garden,
a flock of layer hens, or joining a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm.
There will be a Q and A discussion and the opportunity to see some gorgeous photos of farms in the Swiss Alps and elsewhere.
