2020 Annual Meeting

December 3, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Cultivating Resilience
climate change and the future of farming in Maine

Thursday, December 3rd @6PM
This event will be held online on a live-streaming platform and will include brief board business, including the re-election of board members.

Throughout the country and right here in Maine, agricultural communities are weathering the combined storms of climate change, a pandemic, and inequity. We know that the future will only bring more challenges for the many hands and lands that feed us. At MFT’s 2020 Annual Meeting, we’ll hear from community members who are working at the intersection of food, farming, and climate change — and are finding hope.

HEAR from:

Tony Sutton, PhD, Community Food Facilitator at the ME Shellfish Learning Network and Adjunct Instructor at University of Maine, Orono

Kate Olson, Maine-based writer and PhD candidate in sociology at Boston College

Nick Jackson, farmer at Jackson Regenerational Farm in Atkinson

Laura Demmel, coordinator for the Open Technology Ecosystem for Agriculture Management (OpenTEAM) initiative

Melissa Law, farmer at Bumbleroot Organic Farm in Windham and member of the Maine Climate Council

We know we are stronger together, and that it will take all of us to create lasting solutions for a better future. With your support, we can protect farmland for future generations, empower farmers, and connect farmers to land so they can help feed local communities and steward our natural resources for future generations. Join us for an evening of inspiration and community!
