“Food For Thought” Forum in Portland – March 9th

What is the agriculture industry doing to reduce its impact on climate change? We’re hoping to answer that question in depth on March 9th at 6:30pm at MECA’s Osher Hall.

We’ve all heard that buying organic and local food can help reduce your climate footprint. At our “Food for Thought” forum with Maine Farmland Trust, you’ll learn about innovative agricultural climate solutions, like carbon sequestration, low- or no-till farming, and how consumers can help fight climate change at the dinner table.

We’ll get to hear from John Jemison, a soil science expert at UMaine, Carl Johanson from Goranson Farm,Kyle Foley from the Gulf of Maine Research Institute,Lisa Fernandes from the Resilience Hub, and Paul Dobbins from Ocean Approved. The panel will be moderated by Amanda Beal, who currently works as the Policy and Research Fellow at Maine Farmland Trust. Check out the Facebook event for more information.

Looking forward to seeing you in the Portland Food Co-op,

Mary Alice
Community Engagement Manager
